All of R. A. Miller's works on wood may have rough edges and sides, holes, cracks, splinters, stains, peeling paint, bending, warping, and unsquared corners as they were procured from salvaged materials and repurposed for his artworks. It is typical for them to have nail holes because he tacked them to the side of his house when presented for sale.
R.E.M. filmed their video Left of Reckoning (1984) at R. A. Miller's studio and Whirligig Farm in Rabbittown, Georgia - directed by James Herbert, University of Georgia, Athens.
R. A.'s artwork is also featured on R.E.M.'s Dead Letter Office album (1987).
