Exhibit explores codes of life, society

The intersection — where man meets machine — is the subject of “Object Code,” a new exhibit opening today in the Visual Arts Gallery at the University of Illinois Springfield.

Artist Mike Miller takes the title literally, turning ephemeral fragments of computer language into physical artifacts of paper, plastic and wood.

A reception marking the opening of “Object Code” is scheduled for 5:30 to 8 p.m. today in the Visual Arts Gallery, in Room 201 of the UIS Health and Sciences Building.

Miller will also deliver a lecture on his research at noon Wednesday in Rooms C/D of the UIS Public Affairs Center.

Regular gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday. “Object Code” closes Dec. 1.

The exhibit was featured in a November 4, 2010, article in The State Journal-Register.
