"Myth and Infrastructure" is a live performance with projected animation. The artist's shadow is constantly present in this piece from beginning to end - sometimes in semi close-up and sometimes as a full figure - as the world around her shifts and transforms. Her shadow becomes an integral part of her own fantastical animation worlds, as she traverses oceanscapes, cityscapes, and domestic spaces to conjure dreamlike scenes with light and shadow.
"Myth and Infrastructure" is presented by The Institute of Emergent Technology + Intermedia (iET+I), an entity of research, support, education and community interface at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, Washington.
"Myth and Infrastructure" was premiered at TED Global 2010 in Oxford, England, and has since toured internationally to various festivals, theaters, and schools. Some of these include ISEA Conference (Albuquerque, NM), Anima Mundi (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), New Frontiers at Sundance FIlm Festival (Park City, UT), Exploratorium (San Francisco, CA), TBA festival (Portland, OR), Theatre de la Cité (Paris, France), Animasivo (Mexico City, Mexico), City of Women (Ljubljana, Slovenia), Chilemonos! Animation Festival (Santiago, Chile), Vimeo Festival (NY, NY), Le Forum des Images (Paris, France), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco, CA), Today Art Museum (Beijing, China), S8 Peripheral Film Festival (a Coruña, Spain), Manipulate Puppetry Festival (Edinburgh, Scotland) among many more
Created in 2010 with Special Projects Grant by Princess Grace Foundation, Seed Grant by Under the Radar Festival and the Association of Performing Arts Presenters.

Miwa Matreyek is an animator, designer, and multimedia artist working in Los Angeles. She creates animated short films as well as works that integrate projected animation and live performance/installation. Matreyek is interested in how animation, when combined with body and space, takes on a more physical and real aspect, while body and space acquire a more fantastical quality.
There is another, non-ticketed, performance and artist talk on Feb. 3 at 12:30 p.m., at the same location, which is also open to the public. Entrance is first-come, first served.
