Emily Marie Miller
Miller’s work in Mirror Mirror is addressing the issue of personal idenity in a society plagued with vanity, it delves deeper into the reflection mechanics behind the relationships we hold with ourselves and with each other.
Miller views the mirror as a symbol for increased societal anxiety and uniformity around notions of image. She’s interested in the fact that as people converse the tend to mirror each others movements and expressions obeying subconscious rhythms that endear one to the other in other words we like to be alike, as it is a feeling akin to acceptance.
“Magic mirror on the wall who is the fairest one of all”
“A lovely maid I see, rags can not hide her gentle grace alas she is more fair than thee”
“Reveal her name”
“Lips red as the rose, hair Black’s ebony, skin white as snow”
“Snow White” – Emily Marie Miller
