RGB Lights Mirror
This sculpture, part of Rozin’s Mechanical Mirrors series, uses rotational motion to produce images using the additive color model—red, green, and blue light. The aluminum knobs are programmed to rotate toward or away from a colored light. Each knob is a “pixel” that moves independently, and its rotation influences its reflected color. Vivid lights combined with the glow of the rotating knobs create a 3D illusion and highly saturated images.
About the Artist
Employing various materials—wood, trash, acrylic, steel, pompoms—Daniel Rozin explores what constitutes an image, and what can be transformed into one. He creates artworks that have the unique ability to change and respond to the presence of the viewer. Sometimes the viewer is the content, other times the viewer is invited to help create the image. Rozin has exhibited his work worldwide and won numerous awards. He is an Arts Professor in the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University’s Tisch School of The Arts.
