'All of me, 10,000 Lux for you' plays with full spectrum lighting used in the treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D). Through the construction Lawley attempts to reverse the increase in Melatonin and reduction in Serotonin production processes that can cause depression in the winter months due to lack of light. Exploring the contradiction of an architecture designed to provide assistance, Lawley plays with the balance of curing the disorder and causing insomnia due to over-stimulation.
