NOT SO SOLID EARTH (2017)

 

Black and white photographic series performed and shot by Miller. 

‘Sisyphus’ was a Greek legend who was condemned by the gods for eternity to repeatedly roll a boulder up a hill only to have it roll down again once he got it to the top, it is a metaphor for the individual's persistent struggle in life. In ‘Petra Soma’ Miller echoes rock contours, by mimicking their formations she attempts to dematerialise the self and blur the distinction between humans and their environment. In ‘Sundial’ she lays still for a duration as her shadow shifts around her body to mark the transience of time and the ephemerality of existence.
