Description

The show was organized and curated by as a benefit for Noisebridge, a non-profit infrastructure provider for technical-creative projects, collaboratively run by its members (http://noisebridge.net).

Andrea chose 27 images for the show, and arranged them in the Asterisk space.  Click on the eye above for a catalog of the images being displayed.

The project started in 2002.  Extreme closeups of the body result in surreal images, in some cases looking like bizarre landscapes.  Inspiration for the series came from one of 's favorite artists, Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989).  Since its inception the project has involved over 50 photoshoots and thousands of photographs.
