Creative Thinking Project (Name)

I thought a lot about what I wanted to name this piece. I didn’t want to create this product that I am truly proud of and then kill it with an awful name. To come up with a name, I had to go back to the basics, and do some more research. I looked back at my word association and tried to base my research off that. I was getting quite bogged down about the notion of trying to find out a new word for fog or mist. I could not find anything that I felt particularly pleased with. Then I dove deeper into the concept of the whole piece. And I rediscovered the phenomenon of Sir Issac Newton’s Dispersion of Light. What he discovered was that when white light is shot through a clear prism and is split up into the seven colors: Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red. This process of splitting up white light into its constituent colors when passing through a transparent medium is known as Dispersion. This is why I have named my fountain, Dispersion.
