"I liked the fact that this was a very direct way to make a print. It was doing what printmaking does. It wasn’t manipulating anything. I’m just dropping acid on a plate and the acid bites into the plate, and 'bo-dink!' you print it, and that’s it. Of course, that’s not it, but the directness really thrilled me, and the fact that that’s what I’m interested in- these drips and drops- really worked for me."

- Fred Wilson
