Miwa Matreyek – Projector Performance at TBA:11
Cinema Project presented a program at TBA:11 featuring projector performances by LA’s Miwa Matreyek and Canadian film artist Alex MacKenzie. Matreyek’s Myth & Infrastructure exhibited her usual deftness as an animator which would have been more than enough to hold an audience’s attention. Add to that a precisely choreographed narrative using two projections plus a live, silhouetted performance by Matreyek and you can bet that minds were blown!
Alex MacKenzie – Projector Performance at TBA:11
Cinema Project presented a program at TBA:11 featuring projector performances by Canadian film artist Alex MacKenzie and LA’s Miwa Matreyek. MacKenzie used a hand-cranked film projector (listen for it) to perform the wooden lightbox: a secret art of seeing. My video excerpt hints at the subtle light manipulations of MacKenzie’s performance but more importantly captures the hypnotic drone of the soundtrack. I’ll follow up with a clip from Matreyek’s performance tomorrow.
