In fact, it is entirely composed of rays and beams of light, made distinguishable by the particular phenomenon I was interested in, “crepuscular rays,” which usually occur at sunset brought on by shadows from clouds. The opening to the cave functions as the shadow-producing element in this case.
It’s true that I set out to make a design that was not “about” physics. I did not want a reference to the field itself, physicists, or other aspects that would create a self-referential meaning. I wanted something that would demonstrate physics in the natural world, something that physicists would study, but that wouldn’t be a model, a symbol, or something only found in a lab. Only a comparative few shirts in the derby are “about” physics (like the Phive Physibots, Cold Fusion, Retro Physics, e.g.), the rest feature something physical that physicists would study. Mine is no different. Thanks again for your feedback.
The shirt is beautiful, and it makes as much or more sense than any of the other shirts in this derby. With physics being such a broad sweeping and poorly understood discipline, almost nothing that is actually related to real physics is considered "physics" by the general public.
I personally think its a great shirt and hope it gets printed, although with some of the shirts that are more aimed at this particular group of buyers, I am concerned that it wont. So it goes. Good luck in the future!
