Things and Schemes

My name's Will. I'm a grad student, whiskey-drinker, and art collector with a love of all things pop culture. I spend my days reading books, making tea, and contemplating the universe. I spend my nights fighting crime, taking bubble baths, and reading poetry. I like cats, stairwells, and hip bones. This is my corner of the Internet. If you must know more. I look like this. I dabble in photography.

Quintetto is an installation based on the study of casual movement of objects or living creatures used as input for the production of sounds. The basic concept is to reveal what we call “invisible concerts” of everyday life.
