About the artwork
なる is also named Naru. When this shape came to life I was very excited. She brings forward my imagination. I wanted to get the feeling of something floating.
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.
