Sasha Pas – Russia
Founder of Playtronica Studio
Alexander (Sasha) Pas (b. 1980, Soviet Union) is an artist and founder of Playtronica studio. Pas works with interdisciplinary practices exploring new types of interaction between man and technology with the help of sound as a medium. Playtronica projects imply immersion in the sensory reality where, by playing with various objects, anyone can creatively and freely put to test the possibilities of their body and the external world. Playtronica projects have been exhibited at Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, The Jewish Museum (Moscow), Exploratorium (San Francisco), Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), and Palais de Tokyo (Paris). Pas has participated in the parallel program of the Moscow Biennial of Young Contemporary Art (2018); Sonar+D Festival (Barcelona); Loop (Berlin).
