With vast experience working in art-saturated environments and often delicately cleaning the dust off of various sculptures and paintings, Sean Miller knows a thing or two about the dusty side of museums and art galleries.

In this photo series, he has decided to capture the tiny filaments and particles of dust that float around in these art museums, letting us in on the tinier elements of design that he has already become so intimate with. In essence, he is capturing the slow decay and disintegration of artwork as miniscule pieces of it fall down and mingle with the rest of the dust in the room.

Through his macro-photography of museum dust, Sean Miller demonstrates the finer side, as well as the fleeting timeliness of art.
