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.

Daniel wrote:

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.

The wonderfully amazing wooden mirror
The Wooden Mirror is one part art, one part technical genius, and one part organic warmth.
