Rozin's Mechanical Mirrors

Our world is filled with mirrors that allow us to see what we look like. Throughout the day we catch images of ourselves and realize that we need to adjust a collar or fix our hair. But have you ever looked at yourself through a broken or warped mirror? The image can become skewed beyond recognition.  We often look fatter, shorter, or otherwise distorted. The reflective surface determines the quality of our reflection.

What do you look like?

Daniel Rozin has created a series of unconventional mirrors; they don't use normal reflective surfaces. Rozin's mirrors engage a series of mechanical and technological innovations to project the silhouette of the subject in front of them. It is an interesting take on one's image. Participants at Rozin's exhibits see themselves reflected on a variety of surfaces and materials. Take a look.
