Snow Mirror is the first in a series of pieces that celebrate slowness and black and white, in this piece the image of the viewer is created by the congregation and accumulation of white snow flakes in areas of the image that are brighter. The result is projected on a transparent silk fabric which creates a feeling of the flakes being suspended in space. Artist Daniel Rozin will be featured in the Exploratorium's 2009 exhibition, Reflections.
