"Rust Mirror" is a mechanical sculpture that organizes 768 "rusty" rectangular pixels along a picture plane. Placing deliberate emphasis on the way motion passes through coordinates in a grid, the cascading vertical movement in this piece emphasizes tension between the natural outdoors and virtual environments. A meditation on decay, obsolescence and regeneration, the full experience of this work is completed by the viewer- who takes part, actively and creatively, in the performance of Rozin's art.
