Steve Miller, Wainscott, 2011
Steve Miller began using computers to manipulate imagery in the early 1980s, before most of us even owned a computer. His studies of Rorschach blots, pathogens, DNA strands and x-rays led to a marriage of art and technology — the things that define his mature work — and the morphing of surrealism, scientific imaging and artistic chance. Miller’s pursuit of the connectivity among these things is unrelenting, driving him to a dizzying array of envelope-pushing, shape-shifting visual synapses that illuminate the scientific mind.
