Primer is a preparatory coat of an unpainted substance to prevent wear. I found this material that I kept on my desk for many days and I really loved how it looked after it was accidentally scratched - so I scratched it some more and layered it. I have flat files full of strange experiments like this. Oddly enough, this piece originally done for Ghostly International's expansive 11-year survey, We'll Never Stop Living This Way was done right before I got hired to work on a project called Primer. Perfect fit.
