About the artwork

平和 was captured during a full moon in the forest of Sweden. The warm air was at rest and the night was echoing with birdsong as this creature came to life. The full moon makes it a bit harder to find a dark space to do my work. Going through Scandinavia’s long seasons of darkness is hard, so for me the light painting is a creative way for me to survive the winter.
These creations are anonymous, with Japanese characters as names. Unless you read Japanese, this gives you the opportunity to create your own story. So the question is, what do you see, or, maybe more relevant, what do you feel?

Wilder has been a light painter for many years, experimenting and refining his work. In terms of technique, the images are created with custom-made hardware and a tripod, using a long shutter speed. The camera captures the movement of light as Wilder draws these creations in the air. So what you see is a black and white photograph representing a unique composition created with time and space.
