Join artist Steve Miller and writer Carl Safina in a conversation about their new book, Radiographic, followed by a book signing.
In the book, Steve Miller looks closely at how human beings and their environment and objects are part of the larger whole. Through his innovative use of scientific technology and equipment like electron microscopes, x-rays, MRI machines and even Rorschach blots, Miller examines subjects through a lens that results in the creation of monumental photographic imagery that is not only beautiful and unusual, but tells a story of man, nature, and our universe.
