My name is Raquel Meyers and I’m a spanish autodidact artist based in Sweden. I define my practice as keyboard slöjd (drawing/crafting by typing). My background is photography, performance, installations, video, animation, web and graphic design.
I’m interested in the mix of traditional techniques like embroidery (work-table) and old technologies from the 1970s and 1980s, like the early home computers (Commodore 64) and Teletext (Text-Tv). Both shared the grid as a framework and text characters as instructions, who becomes the essential language in my work.
