[ISEA2015] Artist Statement: A. Bill Miller – GRIDCYCLES

Artist Statement

Website (2014)

gridCycles is a series of 8 webpages. Each page is made up of the same set of HTML, CSS, and Javascript, with changes to specific characteristics and variables in each one. The works form a free-floating environment that creates a multiplicity of image and language, intended as a speculative visual text system. Because the animations are entirely code-based, each one is a unique iteration from within the gridCycles cosmology.

  • A. Bill Miller, an Assistant Professor of Art and Design at University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, earned his MFA at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He has exhibited and screened his abstract ASCII drawings, animated GIFs, web browser-based compositions, and videos nationally and internationally. In 2013, TRANSFER Gallery in Brooklyn NY, held the first solo exhibition of his work. In 2014 he released a video program on Undervolt & Co. and was invited to a two person show at TRANSFER Gallery. Bill also regularly performs and experiments with live audio/visuals in traditional gallery exhibitions as well as art, technology, and music festivals.
