A graduate from CalArt's Experimental Animation program (MFA 2007), Miwa Matreyek is an animator, designer, and multi-media artist working in Los Angeles. She creates animated short films as well as works that integrate animation and live performance/installation via projection. Matreyek is interested in how animation transforms when it is combined with body and space (and vice-versa) and takes on a more physical and present quality, while body and space take on a more fantastical quality. On one hand, Matreyek's performance can be viewed as a cinematic experience taking place on a screen. On the other hand, what is seen on the screen is a collapsed product of multiple layers of animation, objects and body, rhythmically unfolding. Her work exists in a juxtaposition of illusion and non-illusion. She has shown her work internationally at various Film/Animation Festivals, Theater festivals, Performance Festivals, as well as Art Galleries/Museums and Tech Conferences (and one birthday party).
