Anne Macmillan is an artist from Nova Scotia, Canada whose work looks at the effects of observation upon both the subject and object under investigation. Working with digital moving image or data, she combines analytical methods that track, trace, sort and list subject matter, with more poetic or ambiguous approaches of knowing.

On a Fulbright scholarship she studied in the Graduate program of Art, Culture and Technology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She completed her undergraduate studies at NSCAD University. 

Her work has been supported by creation grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, Arts Nova Scotia, and the Council for the Arts at MIT. She has been awarded residencies at Cité Internationale Des Arts in Paris, France, and the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. Her work is reviewed in the Spring 2017 issue of Canadian Art Magazine.
