I was thinking about how the Greeks built temples that anticipated the mind’s ability to fool us by creating optical illusions, in order to make them look visually perfect. The Parthenon looks like its all straight lines & right angles, but it is constructed with very few straight lines and marble blocks that are quite irregular.
Exhibited for the first time at bitforms gallery, Daniel Rozin’s “Peg Mirror” comprises 650 circular wooden pieces that are cut on an angle [that] cast shadows by twisting and rotating in unison…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.
