Though it starts at the bottom as a harmonious column of upward-flowing wire tubing, "Inner Space" seamlessly twists itself into a bulbous mesh and culminates in a frayed, open top. Trivellini's use of strong, durable steel in such a delicate form challenges the viewer's perception of material and strength; a fitting commentary on the campus of a challenging school.

Trivellini worked primarily as an abstract artist, because he felt that photography had supplanted painting in realism. He believed this left the artist with the task of capturing emotion in their work instead of picture-perfect rendering. And because "you cannot go to a book and turn to page 95 and learn how to do abstract art," Trivellini may have felt that these abstract pieces were the most direct way for the him to personally transmit his emotional intent to his audience.
