Philosophy...
Paradoxically staying at a posh arts foundationís guesthouse in Ramallah while subjecting herself to a military and civilian occupation, she spent many of her days, in the spirit of the tenth century scientist from Basra, Ibn al-Haytham, carrying around cardboard to build camera obscuras for anyone who would provide her with a darken-able room and an audience. For the time being, she staying stateside while pretending sheís still in Palestine by making art about the time she spent and didnít spend there and by naming her password-protected wireless signal, ďRamallah.Ē She also makes work about regular things, not bunny rabbits or puppy dogs, but you get the idea.
Background...
Toby Millman is a printmaker, photographer, sound collector, and occasionally a filmmaker as well. She currently lives in Hamtramck, the island surrounded by the murky city of Detroit, but she is semi-originally from Miami and arrived in the American Midwest via Western Massachusetts, Brooklyn and Vermont with a couple back-and-forths to Palestine in between. She filled up her passport several years ago but in 2011, started with fresh documents. Missing the coveted and yet hated rubber stamp, the planets aligned that year and she miraculously and all at once had the funds, the time, and the willingness to leave both the comfort of good water pressure and the ability to communicate in the language she speaks best.
