Wooden Mirror (1999)

February 6th, 2008

Wooden MirrorResponsive installation by Daniel Rozin.

The “mirror” surface consists of 830 small wooden mirrors, each mounted on a servo motor. A camera is hooked up to a computer. The wooden blocks are used as a sort of large, mechanical pixels. They are tilted so that they reflect more or less of the light coming from above, so that they work as a sort of gray scale display.

Rozin’s wooden mirror seems to me to be the mother of a whole range of different low-resolution pixel displays.
