THE FUTURE OF GRAPHICS:
Ezra Miller – the graphic artist, not the actor – is a lover of something coders like to call The Flow: a trance-like state where out of lost hours sprouts creativity. His work grows and iterates alongside technology he uses, pushing the boundaries of his field and creating hyperreal visual universes. Miller’s hypnotic digital art might look, to a layperson, like an updated version of The Matrix. “I play with the code until it becomes an extension of my thought process,” he says. Last year, Miller took a hiatus from New York University to work on projects for Balenciaga with Jon Rafman, producing animations for its game-changing SS19 light-tunnel display, and he has contributed graphics for the likes of Oneohtrix Point Never and Alexander Wang. Simulating the f luidity of nature, his designs play with a vastness of scale, where tidepools f loat in the enormity of outer space. In his own words, his work is “a response to the state of our planet”, an ode to Mother Earth where the most visually interesting elements are purely accidental.
