Leigh Anne Langwell reflects on the relationship between quantum physics and astrophysics in her sculptures. These constructions refer to sub-atomic particles while simultaneously suggesting the vastness of the cosmos. Or is it the other way around? Using different varieties of tacks and pins, Langwell carefully creates entire universes.
