Students will experiment with digital content (video, animation, images) by projecting them on to space, body, objects, textures, etc as we explore different approaches to tell a story or create a theatrical/cinematic moment. The class will comprise of an intro, lab time, and “quick and dirty” projects that will be critiqued and discussed as a class at the end of the session.

Both Myth and Infrastructure and Dreaming of Lucid Living are live performances with projected animation. As the artist walks behind the screen, her shadow becomes an integral part of the animated world – she crosses from domestic/home spaces of kitchens and dining room tables to ocean scapes and city scapes in a fantastical journey.

Talk-backs with the artist will be held following each performance.

Miwa Matreyek is an internationally recognized animator, designer, and multi-media artist based in Los Angeles. She creates animated short films as well as live works that integrate animation, performance, and video installation. Her work explores how animation transforms when it is combined with body and space (and vice-versa). In her video project-based installations, animation takes on a more physical and present quality, while body and space take on a more fantastical quality.
