Scott Miles to deliver the Anne Shiras Pioneer Members Lecture

We are so firmly bound by the confines of time and space. We exist in a three-dimensional physical scale and a fourth dimension of time. Does this construct provide us with stability in our perceptions of the world? Or are we imprisoned by our perceptions of time and space? Over the years, I have been fascinated by how artists can represent the elements of time and space. In my fine art work, I manipulate these elements to challenge the viewer’s perceptions which allow me to create experiences to share my explorations through my art.
