A tree writhes and pulses on the wall, every bare limb and summoning branch tip sinuously alive. Nearby, rainbow-colored light pours in giant waves across another gallery, engulfing everything in the viscous, undulating glow of Jennifer Steinkamp’s “The Wreck of the Dumaru.”

Takuji Kogo’s “A Song for the Silicon Valley” weds a whimsical audio account of a woman’s skittering sex life to dreamy aerial views of San Jose, a place the artist has never visited. It’s a kind of jokey rapture on the endless possibilities (and perils) of connecting in a world of boundless digital accessibility.
