In a departure from many of Harris’ previous pieces, the interactive feel of the Shimmer artworks is achieved without any sensors or electronics. Rather, it is the observer’s viewing angle that controls the spectacularly magical appearance of the piece.
Harris has selected the opposing colours of the dichroic glass for the piece, creating an infinitely variable colour shifting palette where directly viewed and reflected light create the alluring shimmering appearance of the artwork.
