Native American Barcode Weavers

Guillermo Bert a Los Angeles-based artist born in Chile is creating a Movie called “Coded Stories”. The movie is showing his collaboration with South-American indiginous Mapuche Weavers, known for their blocky textile patterns, that carry some resemblance to modern-day QR Codes.


The resemblance inspired Guillermo to a code weaving project, where the stories of the Mapuche are encoded in QR Codes and then woven into tapestry. The Movie has has been successfully funded via the Coded Stories Kickstarter Project
