If you’ve ever wondered what the parts inside of a computer box might look like if reworked into a tiny sculpture of the NYC Skyline, now’s your chance to find out. You’ve probably seen his work on the Internet, but now Franco Recchia’s “circuit board cityscapes” – all composed entirely of cast-off electronic parts – can be seen up close in the exhibition The Odyssey Within: An Exhibition of Fine Art by Greek and Italian Artists which opens at NYC’s Agora Gallery this Thursday, December 16, 2010. The Agora Gallery Blog also has a fascinating interview with Recchia (including more pictures of his art) up now at This Link. I recommend you check it out for added insight on the artist’s methods and philosophy prior to viewing the exhibit.
The Odyssey Within Runs from December 16 to January 7, 2011 at the Agora Gallery, 530 West 25th St, New York City. Gallery Hours: Tues – Sat, 11 AM – 6 PM.
