Larry Miller (Missouri, US, 1944)
Larry Miller is an American artist, most strongly linked to the Fluxus movement after 1969. His work questions the borders between artistic, scientific and theological disciplines. He was in the vanguard of using DNA and genetic technologies as new art media. Miller works also with video pieces, which were often components of his larger installations and performances and documentary videotapes of Fluxus interviews, performances and events. Since the 1960s, Miller has shot and collected an impressive number of Fluxus related material, interviewing artists such as George Maciunas, Joe Jones, Carolee Schneemann, Ben Vautier, Dick Higgins, Alison Knowles and others. Many of Miller’s original compositions have become part of the Fluxus collective’s standard repertoire of works. Since the late 1980s, he has questioned such boundaries in works exploring issues raised by science, exploring subjects as diverse as DNA. Miller considers all of his works, as well as himself, to be performing objects.
