"Peg Mirror", 2007
650 cylindrical wood pieces, motors, circuits, custom software, micro controller
diameter 41.75" / 106 cm, depth 8" / 20 cm
edition of 10

Rozin’s "Peg Mirror" comprises 650 circular wooden pieces that are cut on an angle. Casting shadows by twisting and rotating in unison, wooden pegs forming concentric circles surround a small central camera. The mirrored image produced in this work is activated by software authored by Rozin that processes video signals and breaks up imagery geometrically, seemingly pixel by pixel. The silently moving wood components in this piece flicker like jewels or coins in the spotlight, challenging our notions about what constitutes a “digital object”.
