An interactive sculpture made up of non-reflective square wooden pixels. The piece reflects any object or person in front of it, moving fast enough to create live animation. Mechanical mirrors are a platform in which Rozin investigates the borderline and contrasts between digital and analog worlds, virtual and physical experience, or order versus chaos. The first of this series, Rozin’s Wooden Mirror
explores the inner workings of image creation and human visual perception.
This special commission uses a framed rectangular format that can be scaled to any space, whereas the original edition of this work used an octagonal format.
