Floris Vanhoof - Electronics, video projections
Floris Vanhoof (°1982, lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium)
is interested in the hybrid forms of music, visual art, and film.
His first projections -experimental films on 16 millimeter- evolved towards purely visual experiences which questioned our viewing patterns.
Inspired by structural film and early electronic music, he builds installations, creates expanded cinema performances, and releases his music.
Vanhoof makes his own instruments to explore the border between image, light, and sound.
As media-archaeologist, he confronts the digitally-spoiled audience with flickering 16mm films and 35mm slide installations - formats doomed to disappear.
He often chooses analog technology because of the greater transparency of the workflow, and because of its rich dynamic range. Cut loose from all nostalgia, he experiments with what used to be considered "hightech."
Vanhoof searches for new ideas with old media. He translates sound to image and vice-versa by connecting different incompatible media. He is especially curious about the effects his work elicits in the viewer:
How does our perception operate? Which new perspectives appear?
