Prof. Dennis Miller’s work to be displayed on 80-foot convention center marquee.
Dennis Miller, Professor of Music in the College of Arts, Media & Design, was one of several Boston-area artists commissioned to create a new work for display on the new Marquee outside the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. The 80-foot-tall Marquee offers more than 3,000 square feet of display area on 7 screens, providing full-motion video and is viewed by more than 100,000 pedestrians and motorists from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm daily. The Marquee is visible for half a mile in many directions and is seen by traffic on Summer, D, and Congress Streets as well as from the surrounding hotels, office buildings and the Seaport World Trade Center.
Miller’s work will incorporate photographic images he took during the 2010 Boston Marathon in conjunction with versions of the photographs Miller manipulated on the computer. Both versions will be displayed simultaneously, one on each of the two main screens. The screening program will be on display starting in mid-February and will run indefinitely. A link to information and pictures of the Marquee is available at http://www.utiledesign.com/projects/boston-convention-exhibition-center-marquee-video-wall-project/
In Addition, Miller’s mixed media work, Circles and Rounds, will be the featured video during the first week of January at the popular arts and fashion website, NOOVO. NOOVO is aimed at industry professionals and has a newsletter that is received by over 15,000 people. Its website has approximately 45,000 page views per month. Miller’s work can be viewed here.
