2016: Miwa Matreyek
(Animator, Designer, and Multimedia Artist)
Miwa Matreyek is an animator, designer, and multimedia artist creating work that takes place at the meeting point of cinema and performance. Her work explores how the live body and physical space can transform when combined with the projected image; where the body can take on a more fantastical quality and the video can seem more tangible and physically present. A graduate from CalArts, her work has been presented in theaters, galleries, and film festivals around the world including TED, Sundance, and REDCAT. She is a founding member and collaborator of the multi-media performance collective Cloud Eye Control.
