Daniel Rozin enchanted my Decode Exhibition's visit with his Weave Mirror. This interactive piece is already impressive when it's still; the framework and its matte light gold glow make a beautiful sculpture.
Its mechanical structure reproduces an organic smoky portrait and follows your movements as you're standing in front of it with a charming short delay, as a compact camera would.
It's really interesting to be taken away from digital screens. The physical expression of the technology adds a unique dimension to it : the sound. The Weave Mirror tweets, crackles and shushes as its parts are moving. It brings a lot of life and atmosphere.
Play the video underneath for the sound only! And this one if you want to see more from my Decode visit.
Now, here is a good video from the piece (but without sound). To know more about Daniel Rozin and his work, visit his website (where the picture and info for this post come from)
