“Shimmer” is a temporary public art installation by Fort Point artists Claudia Ravaschiere and Michael Moss. Using the refractive qualities of florescent and jewel toned plexi glass, this piece activates the the Congress Street Bridge and changes the public perception of a familiar urban environment.  The piece is constructed to catch the natural and ambient light to create a luminous field of color and alternating hues. The visual impact of the “Shimmer” will change as the light changes throughout the day.

Locations: Harborwalk at Summer Street (Fort Point side) and at Congress Street (Downtown side).
