Kelli Miller
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Clinton Hill



ARTIST STATEMENT: Astrology, self-help, crystal healing, dianetics, ESP, fortune-telling, cults, and secret societies exist in parallel with accepted social institutions. By challenging mainstream beliefs these fringe movements become a new way to understand the world when the existing models fail. Many of these movements cherry pick concepts from across disciplines and distort their ideas to fit their new concept of reality. I employ this same process in my work. By picking idealized states of existence, whether universal or personal, I generate a distorted, self-created world. Through my work, I envision brighter pastures pieced together by future inventions and leftovers from the recent past.

My work takes on a multitude of forms but always points back to technology. Through video, animation, sound, printmaking and installation I explore the residue of the western world’s worship of progress. Using myself as a filter, I embrace concepts of happiness, success and self-improvement, a spectacle that permits the viewer to examine their own definitions of these broad and slippery concepts.
