To co-exist with other creatures around us, we need to speak in their languages. Last year a photo was captured of a skimmer bird feeding its chick cigarette filter, mistaking it as food. Studies show cigarette butts used in building nests contribute to genetic damage and might have devastating effects over time. OCOR is a project in which I used holographic texture on the filter portion of cigarette, instead of regular white or khaki colors. Reflections are proven to deter most of the birds. Moreover, some studies suggest iridescent and shiny colors on some insects serve as a defense mechanism against flying predators as a sign of warning.
