The media are not toys… they can be entrusted only to new artists, because they are art forms.
(McLuhan, 1954)

Floor van de Velde is an artist and educator whose work explores the reciprocal relationship between art and technological innovation as well as materials and new techniques. Originally trained as a classical musician, Floor works with sound, sculpture, and installation to create immersive art forms that activate space

Her work focuses not only on the autonomous sculptural object, but also questions the spatial positioning and points to the phenomenological experience and embodiment of space. Floor draws much of her inspiration from sound, language, and science and explores the limits of structures and systems of spatial logic and the juncture at which they break down to open up new visual and poetic possibilities.

Floor received a MS in Art, Culture and Technology from MIT, and currently 
teaches at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts in the Sculpture department.
