Potato Music Box (2010)
paper, rope, metal, plastic coating

”The Potato Music Box” (a part of the “Everyday Growing” collection) is a completely handmade music box which reveals its aesthetic elegance and delicate beauty. It reflects the original thoughts of showing the hidden beauty of the sprouting potato. The potato as a consumption article is usually constrained and therefore not allowed to shoot. Shooting potatoes are generally seen as tainted. This music box invites the audience to renew their view on this apparently familiar object. It will bring a twinkle to their eyes.
