My name is Raquel Meyers and I’m a spanish artist based in Sweden. I define my practice as KYBDslöjd (drawing/crafting by typing).The grid is the framework and the characters are the instructions. KYBDslöjd is the joy of text-mode. A brutalist storytelling about technology.
HOLO 1 magazine "Spanish media artist Raquel Meyers tells modern day fables with technology from the past. Woven with Commodore 64 characters sets, flickering in teletext, or fed to fax machines, her world of mythical creatures and dreamlike pilgrimades is one of patience and resolve. Frame-by-frame and glyph-by-glyph, we descend into a jagged wonderland where time stands still and chaos reigns."
