Reflections:  Snow Mirror by Daniel Rozin (Clip)
Running Time:
00:01:59
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.

Running Time:
00:00:40
Shaking Time Mirror is the forth of the "Time Series" Software Mirrors. This series of software mirrors examines notions of time, scanning, motion and stagnation. In Shaking Time Mirror only areas of movement on the screen are refreshed with current video, the rest of the screen ages and turns into a gray stagnant crust. When a viewer moves in front of the piece the crust flakes of and revels the full colored image of the viewer, which gradually grays back. Artist Daniel Rozin will be featured in the Exploratorium's summer exhibition, Reflections.
