Andrea Jespersen makes art based on cerebral activities and everyday encounters; a series of photographs, an appropriated image, or a found object. It is an art practice that explores how conceptual considerations and the time-consuming handmade can coexist in mutual harmony. A negation of categories and ghosts of human logic are used as a method to collaborate with the viewer. Ultimately, the intent is to legitimise questions instead of validating any one answer = inviting cerebral curiosity.

A returning inspiration to the artist is science's unanswered questions, with physics and neuroscience of particular interest. This interest has led to an engagement with how art participates in cross-disciplinary sharing and questioning with the intent to broaden which territories of knowledge we celebrate. The notion of time is another critical component, embodied in the handmade methodologies that morph into a form of thinking = becoming conscious of consciousness.

The various representation systems (and missing ones) related to knowledge inspire the works, deliberately negating to validate one form above another. Indeed, Andrea Jespersen refers to the utopian appeal of flattening the hierarchy of knowledge... The concepts generating her artworks are derived from a broad enquiry into society's built structures, the values we as a society uphold and the shadows of power they cast.
