I've been working with Etch a Sketch as my medium since December 2010. I use the toy authentically to produce these works, using only the horizontal and diagonal knobs, and then I meticulously dissect and preserve them. They are all permanently preserved. I find the luminous quality of the Etch a Sketch beautiful - the dark lines etched against the bright aluminum powder that coats a sheet of glass. Each work takes - on average - 20 hours or so.
