Raquel Meyers Uses A Hacked Commodore 64 to Create Awesome Art

Check out Raquel Meyers‘ awesome art made using a hacked commodore 64! from TheCreatorsProject.

One such artist, Raquel Meyers (the Hack n’ Trade member known as AcidT*rroreast), performs her solo work at festivals and museums worldwide. On top of creating richly textured C64 pieces that stitch together like Mexican or Navajo Indian weavings, she also equips another dated technology, Teletext, to help her create the glitch-art universes that are unmistakably hers.

We decided to a feature a few of these works, in GIF, still, and video form. Check them out below. And if you’re in Israel next week, you can catch her performing her Teletext performance Thread of Fate live at the Musrara Mix #14 Festival, in Musrara.

  1. Wow, Raquel Meyers really is such a great artist! And to think someone could produce art from an old piece of technology, it is just insane! I hope Raquel continues to serve as an inspiration to our current and future artists.
