Miran,when asked about the creation of her art,states there is no
computer manipulation involved.In fact,she jokingly states "I don't even
know how to turn on a computer". Miran feels there's somthing nicer about being physical with paper,tearing it up,painting on top of it,using liquids and proper mediums to cool it down.Miran says there is something a bit impersonal about computers, maybe I just feel that way because I don't know much about them, but right now I love the process of getting on top of the paper and making it a physical thing.
