Over the past 31 years, Steve Miller has presented 35 solo exhibitions at major institutions in the United States, China, France, and Germany. His exhibitions have been reviewed in Le Monde, Süddeutsche Zeitung, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, ArtForum, ARTnews,  Art in America and Isto E.  Miller was one of the first artists to experiment with computers in the early 1980’s, and his work today continues to integrate science, technology and fashion with fine art.  Using the lens of technology Miller reinvents at the traditional painted portrait, the world of fashion, particle physics, molecular biology and the world environmental crisis.  In 2007 Miller exhibited a collaborative project on the subject of human protein with the 2003 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, Rod MacKinnon, in a solo show  at the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University.  In 2013 this project will be a solo exhibition at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC curated by Marvin Heiferman.

His current project, entitled "Health of the Planet," is about the rainforest in Brazil. The forests of the Amazon are the lungs of our planet in that they process the oxygen/ CO2 exchange essential for a healthy global environment.  This project gives Brazil a medical check-up with an examination of our global lungs by taking x-rays of the plants and animals of the Amazon.
