Sasha de Koninck
Sasha de Koninck is an artist and researcher from Santa Monica, CA. She decided to leave the west coast and all of its wonderful weather to explore the city of Baltimore and the greater east coast to complete her undergraduate education at the Maryland Institute College of Art. She graduated in 2013 with a B.F.A. in fibers, a minor in creative writing and a concentration in sound art. The next leg of her journey led her to the Windy City, where she graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with an MFA in Fiber and Material Studies. She currently teaches Conceptual Clothing at New Roads School.
Intimate Instruments is a project I started several years ago to explore textile tactility, and the use of intimate gestures to control somewhat unruly sounding oscillators. For PUMP, I am proposing two different projects exploring this idea of ‘Intimate Instruments’. They will both use the same textile structure- pile - but have two very different interactions. Each piece will engage three of the five senses: Sight, Touch, and Sound.
