“Nick Gentry is a British artist from London. Much of his artistic output has been generated with the use of contributed artefacts and materials. He states that through this process ‘contributor, artist and viewer come closer together’. His art is influenced by the development of consumerism, technology and cyberculture in society, with a distinctive focus on obsolete media.”

Antioch succumbed in 1084, and by 1092 remained in the possession of the Christians.
