Sandra De Berduccy (Aruma) is a Bolivian artist, weaver, specialist in Andean textile techniques and a researcher in textiles and new media. While working with simple and rudimentary tools, such as ribbons, llama bones, hand-woven animal fibers and natural dyes, she usually weaves unusual materials for traditional Andean fabrics, such as conductive threads, optical fibers, copper pieces like sensors, etc. In the complex structure of these fabrics, she includes electronic circuits, microcontrollers, motion or color sensors, digital LEDs, and speakers, creating interactive works of light and sound. In her work, the traditional Andean techniques and the technologies of art and new media are intertwined, resulting in works that continue the old textile tradition of which she considers herself a part of. A native forest in the inter-Andean valleys of Bolivia, it is her work space, laboratory and fundamental space to understand the time of the weavers.

Ars Electronica STARTS PRIZE Honorary Mention 2019

Arte Eletrônica Indígena Project

The Arte Eletrônica Indígena (AEI) project was designed and executed by the NGO Thydêwá. It consisted of a series of ten short artistic residencies in indigenous communities in the Brazilian Northeast in order to cocreate works of electronic art. These were exhibited to the public at the Museum of Modern Art, Salvador da Bahia, in August 2018 and have since toured the indigenous communities themselves.
The participating artists came from Brazil, Boliva, and the United Kingdom, and the indigenous communities are those that make up the network of indigenous “points of culture” with which the NGO works. The purpose of the project was to stimulate intercultural exchange through artistic cocreation between indigenous and non-indigenous people, to reduce prejudices on all sides through collaboration, and to challenge mainstream perceptions of indigenous peoples as “traditional” or “backward”, and therefore not capable of engaging with new, high-tech forms of art.
The resultant artworks marry the concerns and practices of the indigenous communities with electronic and digital technologies to produce highly original results. The strong interactive dimension to many of the works demands that the spectator engage with them, thus breaking down prejudices in the gallery setting also.
Three of the most engaging works of electronic art presented were:
The Earth that is Us, Bruno Gomes and the Karapotó Plak-ô community, digital body painting.
The Voice of the Sea, Óscar Octavio “Ukumari” and the Pataxó de Barra Velha community, electronic sound art with found materials.
Pulsation, Aruma – Sandra de Berduccy and the Camacã Imboré/Tupinambá community, electronic textile art.

The British Academy Summer showcase 2019

British Academy Summer showcase, será una oportunidad para compartir la obra realizada en colaboración con Mangtxai, o “casulo” donde conjugamos técnicas muy diversas: el proceso de la Taboa como se lo trabaja en la Aldea del Cachimbo y los trenzados andinos amalgamados con tecnologías simples de visualización de datos. Muy feliz de poder compartir con el público de Londres este trabajo que no tiene precedentes.
