About


I am aruma (Sandra De Berduccy), Bolivian artist, weaver, specialist in Andean textile techniques and a researcher in textiles and new media. While I work with simple and rudimentary tools, such as ribbons, llama bones, hand-woven animal fibers and natural dyes, I weave unusual materials for traditional Andean fabrics, such as conductive threads, optical fibers, copper pieces like sensors, etc. In the complex structure of these fabrics, I include electronic circuits, microcontrollers, motion or color sensors, digital LEDs, speakers, creating interactive works of light and sound. In my 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 I consider myself part. A native forest in the inter-Andean valleys of Bolivia, it is my work space, laboratory and fundamental space to understand the time of the weavers.
Patreon is a great opportunity for me to share more of my knowledge and process with you.
