Will.0.W1sp
2002-2004

 

Will-o’-the-Whisp, Faery Lights, Teine Sith, Les Eclaireux, Candelas, nearly every culture has a name for the mysterious blue white lights or flames seen drifting through marshes and meadows. Whether they are lights of trooping faeries, wandering souls, or glowing swamp gas, they all exhibit the same behavior. They dance ahead of people, but when approached, they vanish and reappear just out of reach. Will.0.W1sp creates new versions of these mysterious lights, but just as with the originals, as soon as a viewer ventures too close, the lights scatter, spin, spiral then reform and continue the dance just beyond the viewer ’s reach.
