This week the artist that I spoke to was Lourdes Martinez. She is a senior and a photography major at CSULB. The gallery her piece was in was separated and had work of various artists. She only had one piece in the gallery. This was it:
Her piece is a picture of a picture of the Earth from 60 billion miles a away. it is the furthest picture of Earth. She zoomed in all the way to Earth and took a photo of it zoomed in and framed in on the glass. She was really interested in this picture of earth. She told us that photography for the most part is concrete. You take a photo and then you frame it and put it on the wall but she wanted to do something different. She wanted to display this piece almost like a slide under a telescope because it has a science feel to it.
She doesn’t have a website at the moment but is working on it.
