“Myth and Infrastructure”
Friday, April 20th 6 and 7 PM, Miwa Matreyek: Myth and Infrastructure <http://www.semihemisphere.com/MandI.html>
Rush Gym Dance Studio
Matreyek, a graduate of Cal Arts' experimental animation program, merges contemporary digital animation practices with live performance elements that evoke both late 19th century optical toys such as the "magic lantern" and far more ancient traditions of Javanese shadow puppetry. The magic of her performances will transport attendees back to the 19th century "Phantasmagoria" while also challenging participants to reimagine digital art.
Miwa Matreyek’s Myth and Infrastructure is generously funded by the Remsen Bird Fund.
