Raquel Meyers (Cartagena, 1977) works with storytelling in text mode (ascii, petscii, etc) on the classic Commodore 64 game console where she has developed a unique way to produce audiovisual works and installations utilizing animated drawings in 8 bit format. Lightrhythmvisuals released her collected works in 2010 on the DVD ‘Useless, Yet Crucial’. It shows her characteristic mix of black humor, surreal imagery and low-res graphics. During her time in the AV group Entter (2000-2007) she developed a visual esthetic by animating on the Commodore 64 in text mode. Noticeable in animation are The Emperor’s Snuff Box (2008) and the stop motion work Dodekafobia (2009) Polybius (2010) and her solo A/V performance Error Holidays (2011).
Since 2004 she has performed at Transmediale, Mapping Festival, Brussels Cimatics, Tokyo Blip Festival, LABoral and LEV Festival. She currently lives and works in Sweden.
