Artist Daniel Rozin has designed a surprising mirror-like device from… fur. Dubbed the PomPom Mirror, it relies on  motion sensors and 928 faux fur pom poms manipulated by 464 motors to create a mirror reflection of the viewer in real-time.

Sure, the mirror only works in black and white, but the effect is surprising and spectacular. This is not the first time Rozin has attempted projects like this; he created mirror-like objects from other arrays, such as wooden pegs, trash, or even folding fans. All his works “reflect” what the person in front of the mirror is doing, by generating a silhouette.

You can see his work live, in New York – Descent With Modification at runs through July 1, 2015.
