What is beneath the visible surface? What are the motions of creatures without legs? We do not know until we investigate further. Tiny creatures live next to us, in us, around us, under us. They float in the air, swim in the sea, and even survive roasting near volcanoes. We take this investigation into the repeating life-cycle rhythms of creatures invisible to the naked eye as a departure point for music, performance, and gestural painting. We will capture the movement of these creatures through video-microscope and use this as a way to look at the repeated patterns which are the basic structures of life. As a single brick reveals truths of a building's structural integrity, taking a closer look at single cells, like the lone brick, will reveal truths of larger biological structures.

About the Artist:
Laura Linda Miller situates herself within the mortal economy, trading between fear, logic, and happiness to make art with body, light, clay, eggs, sticks, and PowerPoint. Balancing measured, ordered precision with chaotic composition and patterning, she explores the limits of feasibly in fusing silica.  She received her MFA from Columbia University in 2013 and a Masters of Science in Public Policy and Management from  Carnegie Mellon University in 2011. Born in Pittsburgh, she currently lives in Harlem and has a studio in the South Bronx. website: llmiller.org
