Crystal Wagner’s Installation, “Hyperplastic”

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Interdisciplinary artist Crystal Wagner constructs vividly-colored installations that mimic natural forms. For her latest creation, “Hyperplastic,” Wagner wove together a table cloth, caution tape, chicken wire, plastic and paper into a shape that resembles a fluorescent coral reef. The shape is an inherently ironic aspect of this work, given the facts about the notoriously harmful effects of plastic debris on the world’s oceans. “Hyperplastic” is currently on view at Fountain Gallery at Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana through October 5 with a opening reception taking place on September 6. Take a look at some photos of the installation below.
