Artiste en résidence au Shadok.
Keys of Fury. Type In Beyond the Scrolling Horizon. Solo Exhibition.
16th-25th september 2016 // Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival – Le Shadok, Strasbourg, FR
“Keys of Fury: Type In Beyond the Scrolling Horizon” is Raquel Meyers’ first solo exhibition of her work on KYBDsloyd (Keyboardsloyd), or drawing by “type in” with a Commodore 64 computer and teletext technologies. KYBDsloyd is Brutalist storytelling about technology and keystrokes where text is used unadorned and roughcast, like concrete. For many, Brutalism evokes raw dystopias and the C64 is considered a nostalgia object. But KYBDsloyd is not reanimated dead media; it challenges us. It is a dialogue of possibilities rather than an ego-trip monologue with technology.
