In her work titled Family Life, Chilean artist Beatriz Leyton creates large tableaus illustrating the rooms in a typical home—kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room—using pins. Why pins? To depict the fragility of the home and family as well as the illusion of the ‘American Dream’.

Leyton uses thousands of pins against black fabric which give these pieces a glow-in-the-dark type of effect. The perspective alone is impressive.
