A. Bill Miller

A. Bill Miller, Assistant Professor at University of Wisconsin - Whitewater. He earned his MFA at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. His nationally and internationally exhibited works include his acclaimed Gridworks Project, which comprises abstract ASCII drawings, ink drawings, animated GIFs, and video elements.

"We exist within a built environment that is constantly mediated by the grid. Grids organize space through coordinate mapping and patterns of development. Grids compress, redisplay, and reorder information. Grids are an enforcement system imposed upon both nature and culture. I respond to this ubiquity by creating gridworks. These forms examine the blurred boundary between the machine and the human - the tool of data collection and the interpretive mind."
