Daniel Rozin’s interactive mirrors combine an extraordinary range of materials, from wooden pegs to woven prints, to custom software and projection. The act of engaging one’s own slowly articulating image in Rozin’s work responds to the inherent nature of self-perception as performative, fascinatingly abstracted, and fleetingly resolved. Daniel Rozin is the recipient of numerous awards including the Prix Ars Electronica, I.D. Design Review, and the Chrysler Design Award. Rozin is a professor and the Director of Research at ITP in the Tisch School Of The Arts at New York University, where he earned an MPS. Previous teaching positions include the Jerusalem Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, where he also earned a BA in Industrial Design. Rozin is a participating artist in ICA at MECA exhibition “Fracturing the Burning Glass: Between Mirror and Meaning.”
