Sandra is our first featured artist from Bolivia, a country with a rich heritage in weaving. Sandra’s work respects traditional techniques while adding a fresh approach. ” I explore the relationship between nature, processes of traditional Andean textiles and various languages of the new media art,” she explains. She makes her devices and artifacts with a range of materials and processes including electronics, software code, micro controllers and reverse engineering. While her work is very varied weaving is always at the core. “All [my] practices merge with each other and give continuity to the ancient textile tradition of which I consider myself part.”
