Description

This volume explores the curious afterlives of the floppy disk in the twenty-first century. It reflects on notions of obsolescence, media preservation and nostalgia, and challenges these by interviewing those involved with medium today. From floppy filmmakers to floppy painters and beyond; what drives people to continue working with a peice of technology that is typically deemed obsolete? What challenges and affordances does it provide and what does the future hold in store for the familiar black square?
