Islets of Langerhans

Islets of Langerhans by Sophia Sobers

“Islets of Langerhans” receives its title from the name of the location of where beta cells are in the Pancreas. Living with diabetes, my beta cells no longer work. Using the needles which I inject myself with on a daily basis, I create new “islets” through these used needles. In “Islets of Langerhans” I see these organic forms as infections in space – shaping and morphing upon the conditions of a room, representing the challenges which I deal and grow with on an everyday basis.
