(Re)setting Sights suggests just that — a reconsideration of our targets, both metaphorical and real. Would that our aim inspire rather than inflict, nurture rather than annihilate, and question its truth. In layering several modes of representation, "(Re)setting Sights" also injects doubts about its own claims. Artifice lies upon artifice with hand-drawn observations etched by Albrecht Durer, photographed and screened onto real pillowcases, re-photographed, digitally manipulated and combined with hovering reticles and simulated impacts. Perhaps these multiple and contradictory deceptions, like double negatives, can still convey or assert a reality, like an aim, that is too true.
