Cocky Eek teaches a unique discipline at the ArtScience Interfaculty of the Royal Conservatory and the Royal Academy in The Hague. Her classes explore lightweight materials and inflatable structures, looking for ways to bring strange sculptural elements into unexpected surroundings.

One recent Eek project is her kitedress, in which Eek is hoisted in the air wearing a 60-foot long dress anchored by a small truck. The artist and her dress become both sculpture and performance, with the wind dictating the height and the duration of the flight. So far the kitedress has chalked up five successful lifts.
