Myth and Infrastructure

Myth and Infrastructure 4 minute excerpts from Miwa Matreyek on Vimeo.

Have you ever experienced art so beautiful, so transcendent, and bursting with so much magic that you forget to breath and everything feels right in the world? I love art, but it's not often that I feel quite so deeply. Tonight, however, animator Miwa Matreyek swept my breath away (where it is still floating among the rafters at the Salt Lake Art Center). Above are some excerpts of her 17 minute performance. Watch how her shadow interacts with her animated projections. Totally. Utterly. Enchanting.
