The images in this montage are mostly from the scrapbooks of Ellison Miles, for whom the building is named. Mr. Miles is a World War II hero and a successful petroleum businessman. The illusion of a shadow goes from floor to skylight, and is conceptually linked to the photo mural of a petroleum drilling rig behind the viewer. The montage incorporates a "trompe l'oeil" effect ("fool the eye"), using curled corners, thumbtacks, and pieces of tape to support the idea that these images are roughly assembled as in the planning stages of the "final" mural. This concept becomes somewhat surreal, as the images are much larger than life-sized. View a detail of the artwork.
