“Magical… the sheer breadth of the imagery is unlike anything you’ve seen before.” – Los Angeles Times

Acclaimed multimedia artist Miwa Matreyek pushes boundaries in her latest work, Infinitely Yours, a visually stunning examination of human impact on Earth’s natural systems. Featured at TEDGlobal, Sundance, and Lincoln Center, to name a few, this is Matreyek’s third project with FirstWorks.

Matreyek’s glorious animated visions traverse natural vistas and cityscapes as she shape-shifts with her own shadow. Infinitely Yours is an emotionally impactful illustration of the complex harm humanity causes to the Earth - and what it means for all of us to be living in this changing world.
