Exploring the intersection of AI and human marksmanship 
This photo serie seamlessly integrates artificial intelligence with human creativity, presenting a thought-provoking exploration of the collaborative potential between man and machine. Through the meticulous division of the canvas into 32 sections, each manually filled with objects aided by AI, the project challenges traditional notions of authorship and creativity.
One of the most compelling aspects of the project is the use of real human models, captured by the artist, juxtaposed with the AI-generated elements. This juxtaposition prompts reflection on the evolving relationship between technology and humanity, raising questions about identity, agency, and the boundaries of artistic expression.
By employing AI as a tool rather than a replacement for human creativity, Florian Cats demonstrates the power of collaboration between human ingenuity and technological innovation. The result is a visually stunning and intellectually stimulating experience that invites viewers to contemplate the role of AI in shaping our understanding of art and creativity
Overall, this series offers a captivating glimpse into the future of artistic expression, where the lines between human and machine, creator and creation, blur in fascinating ways.

Capturing moments with Matsu Fox and his band
So, here's the scoop: I got booked to snap some moments at Matsu Fox's sold-out bash, and boy, was it a blast! The stage was lit, the crowd was buzzing, and I was there, a bit nervous but ready to roll.
Truth be told, I was feeling a tad shaky under those spotlights, but guess what? The positivity oozing from Matsu Fox and the crew turned it all around. Their good vibes made me shake off those jitters, and suddenly, I was clicking away with a big smile on my face.
It wasn't just a gig; it was like being part of a happy, talented family. Every click told a story of collaboration, not just between musicians but between a slightly jittery photographer and an incredibly supportive team. Here's a peek into that magical night—full of music, good vibes, and a bunch of people who know how to turn nerves into joy!
About work“Freddie Mercury passed away the year I was born. The search for who he was and what he meant in the music world is the foundation of this manipulated image.”
The use of modern techniques has created an image in which a portrait of Freddie Mercury himself is visible from a distance. When one literally comes closer to the work, one sees that it is not merely a portrait, but a combination of two faces. In this way he shows the treacherous simplicity and challenges the viewer to look at things in a different way. The two faces symbolizes the two sides of the life he led.

The lines symbolize the fusion of futurism and humanity. It invites you to look differently at our society. The text is untraceable. Only the lines can be followed.

Vending Machines 
Throughout my extensive travels across Southeast Asia, I encountered vending machines positioned in unconventional and intriguing locations. The sheer proliferation of these machines, coupled with their remarkable versatility, captured my fascination. Notably, I encountered vending machines that surpassed conventional expectations, demonstrating the capability to meticulously prepare and dispense complete noodle soup servings.
This ongoing photo series aims to chronicle and showcase the diverse range of vending machines I have encountered in my journey. The collection will be periodically updated to provide an in-depth exploration of the unique and innovative vending machine landscape in Southeast Asia.

Do you truly have the world on a string
[Or just strung up in your farce?]
photographer Florian Cats 
art director Eva
Published print editorial in Elegant Magazine ISSUE No. 40 – September 2017
is an art project that tries to depict the contradiction of social media.
If you do not follow the trends on social media and do not participate in "exhibiting" yourself, you almost risk becoming an outsider. #thenewme investigates the urge for and meaning of people's urge to apply and asks the question: should we not just try to accept ourselves as we are? Erik-Jan Koopmans and Florian Cats combined the photos of various male and female individuals. New human life forms were created by this transformation. The images were shot in the same space from the same angle. With this they wanted to create a bridge between reality and absurdity.
