Artist's comment: "I'd made a series of targets and reflections, and it was the first year I started my video art period. About this time I acquired a lining tool (AKA 'liner') that made tiny, evenly spaced lines that reminded me of video raster lines. I also was perfecting the KPR photo-etching process. Last, I got a can of silver ink from Dan Smith. Chine colle I had learned from Stephen Hazel. All these things combined to yield my 'Hangdown Target.'"
