In “Cryptozoology: Out of Time Place Scale” Miller will present her findings from “Waiting for Bigfoot.” which was on display in Norwich Gallery's EAST 05 international exhibition, July 2 - August 20, 2005. Although she exhibited a performance work, she did not appear in the gallery. At least not in the flesh. Miller's durational performance-installation, "Waiting for Bigfoot," was located in Northern California (also known as "Bigfoot Country") and was delivered to the Norwich Gallery as real-time video via satellite uplink, 24 hours a day. The artist lived at the campsite, situated in the epicenter of Bigfoot sightings, for the entire duration of EAST 05.
Miller is interested in the philosophical, social and metaphorical implications that the Bigfoot creature represents. Western culture has long been obsessed with monsters and the unknown; currently, these obsessions manifest themselves in horror films such as Nosferatu, Rosemary's Baby, Exorcist, Night of the Living Dead and myriad maligned "B-grade" horror films. However, cinematic monsters are not the only creatures that dominate the psychological landscape of Western culture. Now, perhaps more than ever, citizens regularly report sightings of Sasquatch, Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster, aliens and metaphysical beings.
