By way of introduction, it seems appropriate to reflect upon my artistic endeavors prior to graduate study and how my interest in the use of high technology in art eventually led me to the production of "Test Target Display," a laser videodisk. After completing my BFA degree in studio art, I searched for employment in a related filed. As an undergraduate, I had developed a serious interest in photography and was very fortunate to be hired as a biomedical photographer at a teaching hospital. This position provided me with access to excellent darkroom facilities, as well as many scientific instruments used in medical research image recording. My job required a proficiency at operating this equipment and I quickly found a way to integrate these high-tech image makers into my own work.
