The work explores artefacts, folklore, economy, and how these representations of knowledge, experience, and re-framing are manifested through the use of digital data. What are the remanence, codes, crossing points and signifiers of cultural and social locations?
Mark Miller’s work examines the connections, influences and parallels of a rural Jamaican experience and an urban black British context through visual and audio art platforms. The work aims to assemble a variety of objects, structures and themes that emphasise urban British experience with considerations of their connection with Jamaican folklore.
Miller’s work explores folklore, and its relationship to contemporary urban environments. It considers the links and physiological parallels between rural and urban experience, as a method of examining structures, process of production and conditions that form cultural practices. Utilising multiple media, predominantly drawing, audio and moving image, the work aims to demonstrate a layered approach to questions surrounding cultural artefacts, digital data, individual and lived experience.
