Will Your See Your Reflection In A Penguins Mirror?
Penguins Mirror is probably the most incredible thing in the world! Being comprised of 450 motorized stuffed animal and reductive in palette yet baroque in behavior, it moves in an absurdly homogeneous way! Playing with the compositional possibilities of two contrasting colours, each penguin turns from one side to the other and responds to the presence of an audience. Unfortunately, this mirror is not meant to help you shave or do your makeup in the morning, but isn't it a funny idea to replace your mirror with 450 fluffy toy penguins? Artist Daniel Rozin, whose mirror installation "Descent with Modification" is on display at New York's bitforms gallery, has made exactly that: a low-res mirror out of plush penguin toys that reflects museum visitors as they pose in front of it. Isn't it incredible?
