Danner Milliken is a Christian new media artist with a focus in originality. In 2013 Danner discovered multiple digital realms/effects that hadn’t been done in new media art. Since then he has made them into their own individual fine art series, as well as sometimes mixing them into collages. One of Danner’s most known and original series that he furthers on a regular basis is his signature [] (square) series. This series comes from him extracting small squares that consist of hidden engaging compositions, self-generated by his particular computer program. These squares are derived from certain shapes he picks from a technique he does to begin with on this program.

* Danner recently finished up a nostalgic/contemporary series called "NUSTALGIA", mixing of old and new. Danner found some old Windows 98 software that sparked this series idea. When he found the software, he luckily found an old Gateway Solo laptop that would support it. He took the interesting finds from his old laptop and transferred them to his current laptop by a floppy disk converter. He then added effects from his current-day laptop to the old icons, giving them an interesting revamp. From there he mixed his own photography, computer art and more with the older subjects into engaging compositions.
