Reflections on Air

This paper introduces an interactive mirror that aims to augment human perception and provide people with a visual-auditory experience with the air. To this end, we conceived and implemented a novel interface that responds to carbon dioxide with kinetic behavior and sound. In this study, we outline literature, related works, and the creative process of the practice-based research. We then discuss our findings and conclude with recommendations for the mirror’s use as a mediator for raising awareness of the increasing carbon dioxide concentrations caused by human activities.
