Miller uses film and installations to explore the transformative capabilities of the moving image to reconstruct interpretations of self and culture. Her videos focus on the interplay between preconception and reality in terms of African American identity. The result of her work transforms into a powerful storytelling tool wielded for the possible reconstitution of lost histories and identities. Miller has been the recipient of the Rome Prize (2016); the William H. Johnson Prize (2015); the Rema Hort Mann Foundation Grant (2013); and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Biennial Award (2012), among others. The artist lives and works in Los Angeles.
