"All-Night-Take-Out" by Emily Brock, 1999

Summary

Emily Brock creates intricate sculptures entirely made of glass. She constructs scenes that are often inspired by everyday spaces and pull the viewer into the narrative. An example is her versions of diners that evoke a sense of nostalgia for a bygone era and simpler times. Can you spot the many details she included to make this scene life-like?
