  • overview

    But then (again) is an exhibition of photographic and video work focusing on the celestial bodies that make seasonal appearances near our planet by San Antonio-based artist Amada Miller. Astronomers and scientists have spent centuries probing these mysterious portents, claiming everything from life-bearing origins to humanity’s destruction. Focusing on comets and meteor showers, the works in this exhibition are comprised of a record made of ice that plays the sound of a comet flying through space (recording acquired by the European Space Agency’s Rosetta Mission) and long exposure photographs of the night sky as the Quadrantids and Ursids meteor showers pass by. These images are recorded and obscured by a handmade glass lens made from tektites, a type of glass that is formed from the heat of a meteor impact. Amada Miller is a multi-disciplinary artist based in San Antonio, TX. She recently completed a residency at Künstlerhaus Bethanien via Blue Star Contemporary’s Berlin Residency Program, where she worked closely with curators and research staff at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin. Future exhibitions include Porcino (Berlin) and Grayduck Gallery (Austin, TX). Her work has been exhibited at Agora Gallery, AP Art Lab, Artpace San Antonio, Blue Star Contemporary, Capsule Gallery, David Shelton Gallery, Flight Gallery, French & Michigan, MASS Gallery, the McNay Art Museum, Palmetto Center for the Arts at Northwest Vista College, Sala Diaz, Serious Topics, Sweet Pass Sculpture Park, The University of Texas at San Antonio, and Usable Space Milwaukee.
