Surf/Skate

Author: Miller, Steve

Description: Making and breaking waves on artist Steve Miller's surf- and skateboards, Amazonian creatures from iguanas to piranhas make their way back into their lost habitats in style. Always at the vanguard of scientific and artistic innovation, Miller has integrated biomedical imaging technology - from MRIs to CT scans - to capture the natural and material world as extraordinary photographic images. As global environmental degradation continues to threaten the rainforests, Miller metaphorically restores the dwindling flora and fauna of the Amazon through dynamic surfaces and vehicles. Surf/Skate, a companion piece to Miller's publishing debut Radiographic, documents this expansion of his original concept, taking readers on a ride to the intersection of fine art and material culture. AUTHOR: Steve Miller is a multimedia artist who investigates the ways in which art, design, and scientific technology intersect in contemporary culture. Educated at Middlebury College and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Miller's work, which spans the disciplines of painting, photography, and sculpture, played a critical role in pioneering the Sci-Art movement. With over 50 solo exhibitions at major institutions across the globe - including the National Academy of Sciences, Jack Shainman Gallery, and Hong Kong Arts Center - his work has been reviewed in Le Monde, ARTnews, The New York Times, Artforum, and Art in America, among others. In addition to serving as an editorial advisor and contributor to the photography journal, Musée, Miller is the author of Radiographic (Glitterati). A native of Buffalo, NY, he divides his time between homes in New York City and the Hamptons. SELLING POINTS: Steve Miller's photographs, created using x-ray technology, are printed onto skate- and surfboards, creating a hip confluence of lifestyle and art These are gorgeous moving objects, presenting a compelling juxtaposition of the material and the natural world 140 colour and b/w images
