Daniel Rozin is both an artist and a technician, as much a programmer as he is an artisan. In 1999 he created a brilliant piece called Wooden Mirror, a cleverly constructed collection of rotating wooden pieces that mirror back the image captured by the outward looking camera embedded in the middle of the frame.

I love the hybrid mashup of the organic wood and the very high tech gadgetry running it all behind the frame.

A couple years later Daniel built the Trash Mirror, which use 500 pieces of trash that he randomly collected from the streets of New York City.

This piece suggests that we are reflected in what we discard. The piece celebrates the ability of computation to inflict order on even the messiest of substances - trash.
