Daniel Rozin’s Mechanical Mirrors

A jack-of-all-trades—design, technology, fabrication, and more—Daniel Rozin creates interactive digital installations that reflect viewers like a mirror. But the mechanical art pieces aren’t usually made from the mirrors we’d expect. Wood, rusted steel, ceramic, pom poms, fans, penguin toys, troll dolls, and other materials have all been tilted and turned in Rozin’s work. Wired shares the New York-based artist and educator’s growing portfolio.
