De Vries' work is based on how technology influence our perception and experience of the world, as well as its social and political implications. He translates this fascination in 2D digital photography, 3D sculptures and installations. He grew up in an era when the internet and social media became commonplace. This omni present visual culture finds its way into his work, where ads and visual art intertwine with photography.
"What fascinates me immensely is how digital technologies are ultimately rooted in the human need to overcome physical and mental limitations. This is an ancient quest in which science, art, and the spiritual are interconnected. This quest has led to the manipulated reality of today and the future."
