Please join us for a free presentation of Infinitely Yours by the SCA's Miwa Matreyek.
Further pushing her signature technique of layered projections, Miwa Matreyek creates an emotional, dream-like meditation on climate catastrophe and the Anthropocene - the proposed current era where human influence has effected almost all realms of earth’s natural systems. Miwa’s shadow traverses macro and micro scales, as her silhouette shape-shifts to experience the world from various perspectives. An earth overflowing with trash. A person drowning in a plastic-filled ocean. A school of fish caught in a trawling net. The work will be an emotionally impactful, embodied illustration of news headlines we see every day, and the complex harm humanity causes to the world – and what it might mean for all of us; humanity, as well as other life, and the earth itself — to be living in this changing world.
Premiered January of 2020 at REDCAT in Los Angeles and New Frontiers at Sundance Film Festival.
Winner of Golden Nica award for Computer Animation, Prix Ars Electronica 2020.
This project was supported by a 2019 Princess Grace Foundation Special Projects Grant.
Infinietly Yours is presented as a free, public conclusion to the SCA's day-long Re-Orientation Day 2022: Contemporary Art + Climate Change program of talks, presentations, and group discussions on climate change and the place and role of artists, organized for all SCA students, faculty, and staff.
