Being an absence of mass, sound, weight, and mass; the phenomenon of light continuously defines physicality. Exploring the electromagnetic spectrum, visible light reveals qualities of the present reality. Our universe is centered and unconditionally interacting with mechanisms of light, which evoked me to utilize light as a prominent medium embodied in my current work. My collection, Gamma, titled after the symbol which represents a light photon in physics , aims not only to exist in the physical world but also within the spectrum of light. Each look is informed by the behaviors molecular light photons expresses. Allowing these characteristics to direct materials and case studies, I chose textiles paralleled with experiences that allow light to be an active part of the overall development and presentation. This expansion of physicality within the aura of an illuminated interaction expands the works past the body and into the energy of the electromagnetic spectrum.
