In general, objects emit infrared radiation across a spectrum of wavelengths, but sometimes only a limited region of the spectrum is of interest because sensors usually collect radiation only within a specific bandwidth. Infrared light is emitted or absorbed by molecules when they change their rotational-vibrational movements.
We experience infrared light every time we feel the heat of the sun on our skin or the warmth of a fire. Technically, what we are experiencing in these instances is thermal infrared light. Scientists call waves of electromagnetic energy that travel through space light. We tend to think of light as only the radiant energy that we see with our eyes. But the light we can detect with our eyes is a very tiny fraction of all the types of light that exist. Infrared light is one type of light that is invisible to us as Gamma rays, X-rays, ultraviolet light, microwaves and radio waves.
When we see something by visible light, our eyes allow us to distinguish the light of different waves as different colors.
This project examines human body emitting radiation as if it is perceivable by human eye. Photography medium aimed to make this kind of invisible light open to viewer's senses. Full body-sized print (175x115 cm) allows to create an effect of communication with invisible in other person.
