You excite me the way your gaze touches my body

Fluorescence in minerals occurs when a rock body is illuminated with specific wavelengths of light. The scientific term for this is excitement. These excited electrons temporarily jump up to a higher orbital within the mineral's atomic structure. When those electrons fall back down to their original orbital, a small amount of energy is released in the form of light.

In this work, I’m playfully imagining rock eroticism  and creating a situation wherein humans and rocks have an intimate relationship that culminates in the release of luminous rock passion.
