Bringing Stories to Life: Media & Storytelling with Miwa Matreyek

In this Treehouse workshop, attendees worked with performance artist/animator Miwa Matreyek to approach technology as a storytelling tool, using a video camera, projector, paper and pens, and their imaginations. Participants worked collaboratively to create their own stories with hand drawn elements projected large on a wall as an interactive performance space.

Miwa Matreyek is an internationally recognized animator, designer, and multimedia artist based in Los Angeles. Coming from a background in animation by way of collage, MiwaMatreyek creates live, staged performances where she interacts with her animations. Her work exists in a dreamlike visual space that makes invisible worlds visible, often weaving surreal and poetic narratives of conflict between man and nature. Read more about Miwa at
