BACK TO ARTIST
This series of works was created by digitally manipulating text selected from Algernon Miller’s collection of African-centered books on art, history, and spirituality. It continues his investigation into utilizing words in his artistic practice. Exposure to his antecedent heritage had a profound liberating effect on his early work and he continues to consider these books sacred, for their ability to raise consciousness and to provide clues to his true identity. The artist transforms these influential writings into light-box constellations, stars that may guide the viewer to a self-determined future.
