PomPom Mirror Mimics Reflections with Fur: You Are Your Spirit Animal

Daniel Rozin loves to create mechanical and virtual mirrors, inviting the viewer to participate in the completion of his artwork. His latest piece is no different. The PomPom Mirror uses tufts of fake black and beige fur as pixels to generate a “reflection.”

According to Bitforms Gallery, which is currently where PomPom Mirror is exhibited, the piece has 464 motors, each controlling a black and a beige fur puff. A camera mounted on top of the mirror captures the silhouette of whatever’s in front, which is then reflected by the fur after a short delay.

Daniel also has another new mirror on display at Bitforms gallery. This one uses toy penguins to mimic silhouettes:

I wonder what he’ll use as pixels next. Maybe duck lips and a hand doing the peace sign. Or the logos of Snapchat and Instagram. Head to Daniel’s website to see more of his work.
