Jay Rosen and Mirror Vision 2016

Jay Rosen

Jay Rosen

I explore the possibilities of perception and visual phenomena, by harnessing the immaterial, transient nature of light.

VisionWear are ocular apparatuses which allow for an optically immersive experience with reflection, opacity, and infinity. A wearer's perception will be instantaneously distorted and fragmented into an omnipresently-twisted vision of the world. Mirror Vision's mission is to heighten our awareness to the natural world, by causing us to experientially stare directly into the the invisible operations of optics at work.

In 2017, Mirror Vision joined the synth-pop duo TIME in a collaboration spanning all over North America. Check the tour schedule below or visit the band's website @ timemirrorvision.com.

Currently I reside in Gainesville, FL where I work as a Web Developer for OPIE Software.
