sa_cha is an avatar for collaboration between Chaski No and Sasha Tycko. Chaski and
Sasha have lived in separate cities since 2015. Their collaboration often takes the form of the remix:
sending audio/video back and forth, reworking each other’s tracks to revere and overcome the
sharp edges of 'mine' and 'yours.'
- "Down 2 the Lake," (2018)
- "Of the body that carries it feat. Loleatta Holloway," (2020)
- "A Study in Choreography for the Grid: A Duet"
"A Study in Choreography for the Grid: A Duet" spans three digital sites: a 9-channel virtual-gallery video installation, an interactive website, and a temporary instagram account. The piece is inspired by Maya Deren's "A Study in Choreography for Camera" (1945) among others. It is a formal study of movement both framed and broken by the grid and of the erotics produced by this framing. An inquiry into the pervasiveness of the grid as the depoliticized, default form ordering virtual encounters, “A Study...” plays with the grid's edges, inviting breakdown. Like sa_cha's other works, "A Study..." is part of an ongoing, playful practice of relation and devotion first, and an artwork second.
