CV

Liz K Miller - Artist & researcher

Born 1983, Hexham, UK

 

Liz K Miller’s audio-visual practice spans cartography and printmaking to field recording and collaborative sound art projects. In 2018 she was awarded an AHRC TECHNE scholarship to undertake a practice-based PhD at the Royal College of Art in the School of Arts and Humanities. In this current time of climate and ecological breakdown, Liz’s research considers how listening to the sounds made by trees can reconnect humans to the forest, and how the combination of audio and visual can be used to enhance that connection.
