Influenced by naturally occurring shapes, artists Lisa Little and Emily White explore unexpected structural possibilities. By using aluminum, the artist team is able to take advantage of the material’s lightweight strength to create a large open lattice made from just a tiny amount of raw material. As a matter of fact, the entire recyclable material of this nearly 30-foot sculpture can be condensed into a 2-foot cube.
