|Read All Over celebrates the bookworm in all of us, showcasing readers in Vancouver and the books they love most.|
Sasha Krieger is an interdisciplinary artist based in Vancouver. She completed a BFA in Photography from Emily Carr University in 2005 and received her MFA from California College of the Arts in 2010. Her recent works explore the role of references and referencing in the creation and practice of art, while maintaining an intentional transparency of her subjective relationship to philosophical and scientific concepts as she would encounter them (through elaborate follow-that-reference processes of chain-reading). Needless to say, I am a big fan of her work. Click through to share in Sasha’s keen interest in text, science, philosophy, their representations and meanings!
What’s on your nightstand right now? Are you enjoying it?
I’m currently reading The Universe Within, by Neil Turok. It is a book about trying to understand the universe. Turok focuses on how discoveries in the world of physics have influenced our understanding and perception of the universe. It is an interesting book but I’ve been struggling to get through it because I’m not used to reading scientific texts.
What genre do you usually prefer?
I generally read fiction but in the last year I have been trying to broaden my interests and read more non-fiction. By reading books on topics like the universe I think that I can learn things that will actually influence my outlook on life and ways of thinking.
