Miller at Four Seasons
“The forests of the Amazon are the lungs of our planet,” Mr. Miller said. “This project gives Brazil a medical checkup by taking X-rays of the plants and animals of the Amazon.” Images from the series were projected on the ceiling of the bar and installed as light boxes and furniture around and in the pool.
“When art and science intersect, it changes the context, beefs up the scale, and alters responses to imagery in unexpected ways. Images of the smallest of things become images you can get lost in,” the artist has said. Mr. Miller has exhibited worldwide, with recent solo shows in Rio de Janiero, Switzerland, and Washington, D.C.
Steve Miller took over the Philip Johnson-designed interior of the Four Seasons restaurant in New York City recently with an installation of his X-ray series dealing with the Amazon rain forest. Images were projected throughout the restaurant and placed in light boxes around the bar and in the pool. The one-night stand took place on Oct. 9.
