Mirror Answers the Question: is That a Weave?
The Weave Mirror uses 768 individual strips which are woven together into a grid. As passersby walk in front of the work, motors adjust the woven strips to change the greyscale intensity of that particular X/Y coordinate on the grid. When you step back, it forms the illusion of a real-time mirror.
Rozin also showed off his Peg Mirror which uses 650 angled dowels which each rotate to reflect different greyscale values.
The exhibition continues through October 8th, 2007, so if you happen to be in the New York area for any reason, be sure to stop by Bitforms to check out these amazing works. The gallery is located at 529 West 20th (between 10th and 11th) in the city’s Chelsea neighborhood.
