ART: “Penguins Mirror” by Daniel Rozin

In our opinion this is one of the coolest installation we have seen in a while. The artist Daniel Rozin created a installation of 450 motorized stuffed penguins and titled it the “Penguins Mirror”. They react on movements from the visitors, if you go left, they’ll go left too. This here is straight up contemporary art and we are feeling it.

Penguins Mirror” is an installation scattered on the floor and comprised of 450 motorized stuffed animals. Reductive in palette, yet baroque in behavior, it performs an absurdly homogeneous system of movement. Playing with the compositional possibilities of black and white, each penguin turns from side to side and responds to the presence of an audience. As they perform, the penguins’ collective intelligence is puzzling, yet somehow familiar, as the plush toys enact a precise choreography rooted in geometry.
