Apr 21st, 2022 | Artist in Residence: Patricia Cadavid, Knotting the memory//Encoding the Khipu_
From a decolonial perspective, I am working on the vindication of the memory contained in the ancestral interfaces of the Andes of South America taken away by colonization and their connections with art and science. I reuse this ancient technology in new artistic processes related to sound, New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIMEs), tangible live coding, and multimedia performance.
