1. "Shaking Time", 2005
    computer, custom software, video camera, plexiglas, plastic tubing, projection or screen display
    variable dimensions
    edition of 6

    "Shaking Time" is a software art installation that generates a live reflection of its display environment. When viewers are in motion it's on-screen imagery appears vibrant, but the surface gradually decays and begins to grey in color when objects or people are still. Then as gesture naturally resumes, flakes of film appear to shower or shake off, breaking away from encrusted rigid form. Trails of movement form a textured surface, echoing the gesture of viewers. This work processes video captured from a small camera and plays on a computer that runs artist-authored software.

  2. "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”.
