The images in this work come from the 'drops', the 'in-between', the 'shadows' of the dance drawing pieces cut for the other Marks and Messages sculptures.

These pieces were cut by a plasma-arc electric torch in a steel foundry on the hottest of summer days, August 6, 1991. As this was an anniversary that I have always marked, the title for the piece became representitive of the shadows and ghost marks left after the atomic blast.
