Lourdes Martinez’s art work that she displayed for this week was out of the Merlino Art Gallery. Lourdes’s art work that she had on display in the exhibit came from an inspiration of a picture from 1990. The picture was taken from 66 billion kilometers from Earth. In her display, she used the photo taken from far away and zoomed into the photo to make her display. Lourdes decided to use the photo of Earth because she taught it was interesting. In addition, she was showing her audience the advantages of photography and the abilities of technology that would allow her to create her art work. In her art world, she starts with an idea that is fascinating to her and finds a way to make it relevant to art.
A great explanation to her art work was written in a book explaining her art display:
“Photographs enable us to step outside of our singular experience and witness our existence from the point of view of a vast and indifferent universe. How do we record our existence in the universe if not with a photograph? What does it meant sayI am here? You are here.”
