Rozin presents digital sculptures at biforms NYC
Danny Rozin is an artist and teacher at ITP, where many of us at Popgadget studied. This week, Rozin has a new show, called Fabrication, opening at New York's digital art gallery bitforms. In the show, he continues to explore the concepts of mirrors, representation, and the relationship between the digital and analog world. He will be presenting the world premiere of two sculptures, Weave Mirror and Peg Mirrors, and one US debut of Snow Mirror.
Weave Mirror uses 766 curved prints which are connected to motors. As they are manipulated, the prints create portraits, when viewed at a distance. Similarly, Peg Mirror employs 650 wood rods and a camera in the center of the piece. The camera picks up images, and software written by Rozin translates the digital video into an analog image by moving the pegs, as if they were pixels on a computer monitor. Finally, Snow Mirror, which was first shown in Seoul in 2006, captures site-specific images and projects them on a screen made of silk.
Fabrications opens at the bitforms gallery nyc, and runs from September 8th 2007 to October 6th, 2007. An opening reception is this Saturday, September 8th from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Rozin will also be presenting an "Artist's Talk" on Saturday, September 29th at 4:00 pm.
