WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Lycoming College will host a solo exhibition titled "Becoming One With Zero," by Boston-based artist Julie Miller in the Digital Media Gallery of the Communication Building from Nov. 11 through Dec. 18. The exhibit opening and artist's reception will take place on the 11th from 4-5:30 p.m. That same day, Miller will give a lecture on her work from 1-2:30 p.m. in the College's Fine Art Lecture Hall.

"Becoming One With Zero" is an exhibition of animations, drawings printed on more than 700 stickers, and works on paper that Miller says "reflect her fascination with sensation through aesthetic experience." Her work is deceptively simple, but through the obsessive abstraction of shape and form, she engages the viewer in a phenomenological experience.

Cate McQuaid of The Boston Globe states that Miller's work "challenge[s] ordinary assumptions about visual perception" and that "her remarkable video most dramatically throws vision into a new light [through] wild variation and hypnotic correspondences. That tension between obsessive similarity and inherent differences can make looking at her work nearly as compulsive as their creation must have been."

Miller earned a master's of fine arts from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University. Her work has been reviewed by The Boston Globe and The Boston Phoenix among many other publications. She is represented by The Steven Zevitas Gallery in Boston, Mass., and has exhibited nationally and internationally.
