Daniel Rozin is an artist, educator and developer, working in the area of interactive digital art. He’s created a wooden mirror — but there is trick to it, as there is with all things magic … We hear he has one mounted on his bedroom ceiling which is probably very distracting …

Beautiful Statistics

We ran across this a few days ago and have decided to share.
Artist and photographer Chris Jordan has found his art niché. It’s named “Running the numbers.” He creates large, intricate prints assembled from literally thousands of other smaller photographs — which are beautiful in their own rite — while at the same time educating the public or increasing awareness of an issue.

He has decided to “look at contemporary American culture through the austere lens of statistics.”
