"Shimmer presents two installations, created using generative software, that reconfigure the gallery into a laboratory for innovation in the use of scale and material. For Bifid, architect Alisa Andrasek develops a ceiling to floor installation made of densely woven translucent ribbons, creating the effect of a vibrant, artificial stalactite field within the museum space. Reaching up the adjoining walls, Waken, an installation of tendon-like materials and embedded speakers created by artists Beth Coleman and Howard Goldkrand, builds across a network of signals to produce a gentle cacophony of sound."
