"If computers are the power looms of the modern industrial revolution, software is more like knitting. Programmers still toil in digital sweatshops coding software by hand, writing and re-writing one tangled line after another. Not surprisingly, they sometimes drop a stitch, which later unravels as a bug in a program." (Plant, 127)

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 is currently a PhD student in Intermedia Art, Writing and Performance at the University of Colorado Boulder, where she works with Laura Devendorf.
