Wooden Mirror by Daniel Rozin

Wooden Mirror – 1999

830 square pieces of wood, 830 servo motors, control electronics, video camera, computer, wood frame. W 67” x H 80” x D 10” (170cm , 203cm, 25cm).

“Built in 1999, this is the first mechanical mirror I built. This piece explores the line between digital and physical, using a warm and natural material such as wood to portray the abstract notion of digital pixels.” – Danny Rozin

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.
