Charles G. Miller operates as an artist / researcher leveraging aesthetic practice as a means for evaluating, measuring, and critiquing the illogical operations within our lived urban historiography. While addressing contemporary American spatial structures directly, this unique practice reveals conceptions of site, landscape, and context as merely dominant informatative structures as they are played out in the lived space.

Affectionately, Chuck's projects elicit cultural / civilization polemics for their material potential to be morphed into new interfaces promoting discourse curative of placelessness and manic -"me"topias. As is evident in his expansive study / representation of Southern California's unyielding megalopolis Ultimately, his perusing of this sublime and illogical agglomeration, whose mythic allure exacerbates troubles of resource scarcity, ecological fragility, and sharp socio-economic inequity, works to problemitize the export of such unsustainable global desire and entitlement architectures.

Formally, his work drafts unseen pragmatics, patterns, and multiplicative uses within the built environment, and works to develop pedagogical / community based programs lending transformative agency. Although, not easily gallerized, these dialogical works are masterfully deployed through video and installation as a creative means to convey information while encouraging revelatory experience.
