Statement

Miwa Matreyek is an award-winning animator, designer, and  multi-media artist working in the LA area. 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.  Her animation shorts have been shown in LA FreewavesSan Francisco International Asian American Film FestivalPhiladelphia Film Festival, and the Platform International Animation Festival. She is a founding member and core-collaborator of the performance group Cloud Eye Control who has shown their work internationally, including the Festival Fringe in Edinburgh, the Time Based Arts Festival, and the San Francisco International Film Festival.

Her solo video-performance, Dreaming of Lucid Living, won the Princess Grace Award for Film, as well as two awards at the Platform International Animation Festival: Student Grand Prix and Audience Choice Award for Best Installation.

A recent graduate from CalArt's Experimental Animation program, Miwa is trying to figure out how to navigate her head full of ideas through the real world without getting shipwrecked.
