Patrick Millard, Photograph, 16 x 67 in
Patrick Millard (b. 1981, d. 2011) originated from the Michigan town of Lamont and lived the latter part of his life in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His work in photography, new media, and sound has resulted in a diversified portfolio addressing ideas about media, digital culture, technology and the interactionsthat human beings have within their own synthetic environment. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and continues to gain recognition. In 2008, Patrick began to show his work inside the virtual simulation world Second Life; exhibitions that advance beyond two-dimension work and expand his ideas of simulation, virtual reality, and the synthetic future. Patrick received a BA in photography from Grand Valley State University and an MA in Fine Art from the Savannah College of Art and Design and worked as Assistant Professor of Photography at Point Park University in Pittsburgh, PA, until he sadly passed away in December, 2011.
