Polyphonic Shimmering was authored, edited, and designed by the participants of a seminar led by Meg Miller in VCU's School of the Arts in spring, 2024. They are Jalen Adams, Rasim Bayramov, Kai Chuang, Molly Garrett, Tariye George-Phillips, Aya Khalife, Bradley Sinanan, Quinn Standley, Weitong Sun, Taehee, Yuan Xin, and Yangyang Zhang. All of their pieces are richly rendered, beautifully described; their research and experience gives depth and fascinating texture. These pieces shimmer and hum, they play with duration and pacing and expand language beyond its conventional encasements. They allow us to see what they see, in ways both visual and textual, but mostly through language that blurs the distinction between the two.
