Shaking Time Mirror is the forth of the "Time Series" Software Mirrors. This series of software mirrors examines notions of time, scanning, motion and stagnation. In Shaking Time Mirror only areas of movement on the screen are refreshed with current video, the rest of the screen ages and turns into a gray stagnant crust. When a viewer moves in front of the piece the crust flakes of and revels the full colored image of the viewer, which gradually grays back. Artist Daniel Rozin will be featured in the Exploratorium's summer exhibition, Reflections.
