On display are three Proxxi Composite prints that were created using a patented technology that enables a static, digital print to display two completely different images according to the distance of the viewer. Rozin invented the system in 1997, and then used it to create a series of works that explores both pop culture and politics. By contrasting the American symbol Uncle Sam with candy from consumer culture, a headshot of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon with a map of the West Bank, and a film still of lovers Yves Montand and Marilyn Monroe with the New York skyline, Rozin’s prints play with the physical relationship between viewer and artwork to reveal that there are two sides to any story.
