Dream Machine with Jonathan RosenInternational language artist, Jonathan Rosen, debuts a new digital mirror piece at The Standard Spa, Miami Beach from his interactive Dream Machine series. Titled THE STANDARD, the piece flashes thousands of phrases on the surface of the mirror. When a viewer stands before their reflection and takes a photo, a single message is frozen over them. This new iteration of his Dream Machines explores the personas and labels we wish to embrace, as well as those we try to escape. THE STANDARD will be on view in the Lobby, November 29 - January 2022.
