Abstract: 

R. Wong generalized Blankanship's construction of wild Cantor sets in order to get a wild Cantor set in the Hilbert Cube Q. Here, we will construct a Cantor set in the Hilbert cube by using simpler techniques and we use the idea of I-essentiality of a map from B^2->Q to prove the wildness.
