Biography

Statement > The grey-everyday seduces through conformity and standardization. Our malleability through habit, ritual and tradition confirms that we are simply pattern processing machines, born out of pattern and destined to live out our lives as pattern. Familiarity and pattern give meaning to life, cushioning our inherent time-dependency and allowing us to deal with the “urgency of life”. We expect repeatability and consume consistency. Confirmation through repeatability qualifies our endeavours – pattern is control and safety; it is titanic, ubiquitous and blind. Pattern gives continuity without consideration – it simply is.

CV & Education

Bio > Rob Miller gained a Sculpture Degree from the Wimbledon School of Art in 1993, followed by an MA in Graphic Media at UAL in 2007; his work has slipped between video, photography, installation and sculpture, originating from a restlessness with the world that defines over 20 years of making. He has exhibited internationally, including the WW Gallery’s exhibition Afternoon Tea, at the 54th Venice Biennale, and Time Will Come, Factory-Art, Berlin 2012.
