Radiographic: X-Ray Photo Inventions
Foreword by Carl Safina
Preface by Marvin Heiferman
Steve Miller's innovative artistic experiments merge X-ray imagery with the complex beauty of nature. Working with scientific equipment including electron microscopes, X-rays, MRI machines, and even Rorschach blots, Miller examines natural subjects (and sometimes man-made ones) through an X-ray technology that results in astonishingly beautiful representational and abstract pictures.
Miller's choice in subject matter knows no bounds, pulling from such diverse elements as blood cells, X-rays of plants and animals from the Amazon rainforest, the folding of proteins, and the movement of ions. The first monograph from a founding father of SciArt, Radiographic offers an opportunity to see the work of a creative talent described by The New Yorker as "qualifying as a Prophet" and who has expanded the boundaries of what we know as art today.
