Floris’ work focuses on futuristic fantasies and concepts. It visualizes technological progress, sometimes by showing the benefits, other times by presenting the negative consequences.
Among his video works are The Order Electrus, Metalosis Maligna, The Origin of Creatures and Juxtaposis. These video’s were presented and awarded at exhibitions, filmfestivals and art events all around the globe. In 2012 his online media project Human Birdwings reached the world press. It allowed Floris to share his fictional story at television and radioshows, like ABC news, CBS news and Dutch primetime television show De Wereld Draait Door. One of his other projects, Rayfish Footwear, was a collaboration with Next Nature Network, Koert van Mensvoort and Ton Meijdam. Rayfish Footwear is a fictional company that offered personalized sneakers crafted from genetically modified stingray leather. Various mediaplatforms were used to spread the story.
Currently Floris is working on a new experimental online project called The Modular Body. It visualizes a future where a prototype of the human body is designed and created with 3D printing and cell culture technologies.
