Rosler’s poetic and humorous interrogation of her subject matter inspired me to develop my Etching from Unit 10 further. I wanted to incorporate text into the images, with descriptions of the subject matter at hand. I had been using photographic polymer plate to etch my previous work, but as I now wanted to work back into my image, I chose to use a zinc plate with a photographic finish on it. Unfortunately it was too difficult to wrk back into the plate, as the original image would be ruined. My next option would be to use a second plate and overlay it, to use the dry point method of etching, or letterpress over the top of the image instead. This piece of work is ongoing.
