Floor van de Velde & Elaine Buckholtz

Floor van de Velde is a Belgian born, South African cross-disciplinary artist working with sound, video, sculpture and installation. Her practice engages a wide range of disciplines, finding points of convergence between music, time-based media and technology. Van de Velde’s deep interest in music technology and digital art has led to experiments with electronic, classical, non-western music, sound collage and a general investigation into how digital precision and acoustic warmth can complement each other. Her work has been performed and showed in San Francisco, New York, Boston, Cape Town and Johannesburg. Floor studied sculpture at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and is currently a Master of Science candidate in the Art, Culture and Technology program at MIT.
