A fluid, engaging and boldly colorful interior-exterior installation is on display at the Burlington City Art Gallery in Vermont. The sculptural work is done by renowned artist Crystal Wagner who is known for her biomorphic approach to art and her experimental use of materials.

This particular interior-exterior installation is worth mentioning because of its unique approach to stylistic curation. The artwork elegantly transcends the established architectural boundary between indoor and outdoor spaces. Dubbed 'Traverse,' the sculpture "grows from floor to ceiling and emerges outside to meander across the [street-facing] facade." In addition to challenging pre-established spatial categories, the interior-exterior installation also stimulates the audience visually by way of its evocative natural aesthetic, the rich use of color and the interplay of screenprints and recycled fabrics.
