The future does not need us. Reason and life submit to the ferocity of financial mathematics, algorithms and technology. The future holds a techno-medieval version, where all stored knowledge will be reduced to premium access or simply disappear, leaving the cloud in ruins. The Internet is destined to collapse, but its legacy will become an aestheticised version for contemplation, a full-blown ruinewert. Human beings will be reduced to techno-bubbles rather than relics. It will be hard for us not to end up as the debris of the Anthropocene, but we can still resist.

About Raquel Meyers

Raquel Meyers works with obsolete technologies such as the Commodore 64, teletext, typewriters and fax machines, mixed with photography, animation and embroidery, among other techniques. She defines his practice as KYBDslöjd [expanded typing], which can be roughly defined as <a manual skill with a keyboard>. This concept is based on and refers to the typewriter, concrete poetry, demoscene and brutalism. Keystrokes contribute to performance, while poetry contributes to a system, by revealing the architecture of PETSCII, the raw, unadorned character set of the Commodore 64.

The artist has exhibited in art centres, galleries and festivals such as Ars Electronica, Transmediale, Xpo Gallery (Paris), P21 Gallery (Seoul), La Casa encendida, Liste Art Fair (Basel), La Gaîté lyrique, Tokyo Blip Festival, Square Sounds (Melbourne), Vector Festival, LABoral, Digerati Emergent Media Festival, iMAL, SeMa Nanji, BMoCA, Mapping, Piksel, Shibuya Pixel Art, LEV, MFRU, HeK, Fylkingen and PlatteForum.
