Framed Art Print

Will Santino (willsantino)

Photocompellia (light-gatherer)

by Will Santino

Choose from a variety of frame styles, colors and sizes to compliment your favorite Society6 gallery, or fine art print - made ready to hang. Fine-crafted from solid woods, premium shatterproof acrylic protects the face of the art print, while an acid free dust cover on the back provides a custom finish. All framed art prints include wall hanging hardware.


The Photocompellia (light-gatherer) lives in the vitreous humour, an enormous glacial hall in the labyrinth of our eyes. It collects the photons that bombard our retina, turning their chaos into order. Turning non-sense into sense. Maximilian Van Duult, who coined the term Photocompellia in 1662, once wrote, in a letter to his favorite weathervane, "What explanation is there for Blindness, besides Extinction?"

Close your eyes. Consider.

I like to think about what he might do with all the lil light bubbles - roll them along the floor to trip schoolchildren? What sound would it make if you smashed one with your teeth?
