Human Presence and Fidelity in Media-based Performance

May 13, 2013

5:45 pmto7:00 pm

Miwa Matreyek approaches media-based performance work from her background in animation and collage, as well as mixing in ideas of puppetry, toy theater, and installation. In her own work as well as her group work with Cloud Eye Control, the presence of a body is the focus that media is built around. Part of the intention is to highlight the moments of connection and disconnect between the body/space/objects with the virtual/media. How do these intersect? How does one transform the other? How does making choices about using low-fi materials (paper, fur, bodies) transform technology?
