Does your mirror smile back at you? Daniel Rozin's moving mirror will wave back at you every time you have at it. He is a New York-based artist who makes incredible art installations and sculptures that respond to the movement of any viewer in a fantastic way that will just leave you a little speechless.

The mirrors that you are about to see below have a life of their own and will do just what you do, but from a different perspective. Their “life” consists of wooden pegs, laminated rings on a circular band, or even pieces of trash or recycled objects. They are all moved by a custom-made software which responds to the video sensors that Rozin carefully places inside his artistic installation.

This way you’ve got a sculpture that acts like a mirror, but it’s not a mirror, it’s something a thousand times more puzzling. What inspires the artist? In his own words: “My inspiration comes mostly from science and scientific concepts like evolution and laws of nature and geometry. I am also very inspired buy painting styles and painters of almost all styles.”

Enjoy!
