Visualizing daily life through broader EM spectrum

  1. Mar 2, 2010 #1
    Sorry if this isn't the best forum for this question; putting it here due to a gut feeling cos my brain wouldn't tell me where to put it.

    I'm thinking of an idea for an art project. I'd like to somehow depict what a boring, every-day scene might look like if our eyes could see more of the EM spectrum. I mean a LOT more, not just UV and IR. Like out to gamma rays and radio, even. Can someone point me to any resource that could help me to discover how much energy reaches us from different bands in the spectrum? If this is a nonsense question, please assume that it's just because I lack the vocabulary to articulate it, rather than cos I'm just a big doofus.
