Nicolas G Miller
March 15 — April 13, 2014
opening reception 3/15 from 6 to 9 pm
The Reading Room will present Common Sense by Nicolas G Miller (Marfa,Texas) March 15 through April 13. Common Sense is an installation involving sound and sculpture that deals with ideas of communal, aesthetic experience and its relationship to moral judgment. The “soundtrack” for the exhibition is derived from Low Frequency Effects tracks of Stephen Spielberg films. LFE tracks manifest as low rumblings that give a bodily sensation and are used to “fill in” the sounds of thunder, explostions, crashes, etc.
Miller lives and works in Marfa, Texas. He received a BS in math and physics from the University of North Texas and studied music and art at CalArts. In 2013 he received a Dallas Museum of Art Kimbrough award. Miller is known for his musical compositions, including the opera APOTENTIALLYGOODEXPERIENCE, and his artist’s editions project Recondite Industries. His work has been shown at Marfa Book Company and The Locker Plant; and he was an artist-in-residence at Colpa Press where he produced a limited edition publication.
