on view November 30, 2023–March 3, 2024 Daniel Rozin is an artist, educator, and developer working with interactive digital art. For over three decades, beginning in a time when new media was a burgeoning experiment, Rozin has investigated the structure and materiality of images using technology. While other digital artists often remove material from their compositions and focus primarily on technological capabilities, Rozin embraces the tactile, devising unique ways to manipulate objects and recreate pixels in a large format scale. His technique incorporates the idea of assemblage and sculpture, wrapping it into a complex web of computer engineering and software development. His blend of digital media with material results in sculptures that have the unique ability to change and respond to the presence and perspective of the viewer. In many cases the onlooker becomes the focus of the piece; in others the viewer is invited to take an active role in the composition. Although powered by computers, Rozin strives to keep the viewer unaware of what controls his sculptures, with technology and mechanical components seldom visible in the final structure.
Rozin's artwork has been shown in galleries, museums, and art fairs around the world. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Prix Ars Electronica, I.D. Design Review, the Chrysler Design Award, and the Rothschild Prize. He is currently an Associate Arts Professor in the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.
