Willats is interested in art as an intervention in social patterns and identities. He has frequently grounded his work in research based projects, though his early art was more object-based. Light Modulator No. 2 was a project for an outdoor public sculpture made of moving vertical panels, Perspex and painted wood, through which people could pass and interact.
