Shazam!!! posits goddess status through self-containment. It is related to a large group of Perlman's memorable terra cotta sculptures with animal physicality, sacred historical references, and architectural aspects.

Cara Perlman was an early member of COLAB. Her sculptural installations include Mother’s Breath on the roof of Deitch Projects in New York City. She has received a fellowship from the Guggenheim Foundation and an individual New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship. Cara has made several set designs for choreographer William Forsythe, director of the Frankfurt Ballet. She has also made a number of media works and has recently completed a video production for ESPN about teenagers and ski jumping.
