Dispersion aims to encourage the act of making a positive change within the context of climate change. Focusing on the catastrophic Oil Spills around the globe, the mirror utilises a forced interaction to evoke a moment of contemplation about the pervasive toxicity that can result from human oil exploration and extraction. The interaction is initialised through a wind sensor located on top of the frame, encouraging the user to participate in the act of ‘Repair’ by blowing into the sensor.
The interactive mirror is coated with two types of black thermochromatic pigment mixed with resin, which visibly transforms to become clear when heated. A custom made heating system is attached behind the mirror which activates via the blow sensor.
