ITP Faculty Member Danny Rozin was profiled by Wired for his work. 

"A lot of my pieces use light and shadow in order to create pixels," explains the artist, who's also an associate professor in the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.

Rozin's latest obsession is a series he calls "mechanical mirrors," which cast a viewer's image on a sort of screen made from various materials like wood, soft pom-poms, and even trash. Each piece is kinetic; a sensor picks up the image of the viewer, and the screen moves to "reflect" the form of the person standing in front.
