Art Description

Sculpture: Wood on Steel.

Potato farm is part of a series of works entitled Yield which explore the legal, scientific and ethical complexities of bio-engineering. The work, as one reviewer described it, "acknowledges both the environmentalist's dire warnings and the optimism of the dandelion that defies concrete's domination"(Gloria Hickey). Potato Farm was inspired by the news that certain potatoes are genetically modified to grow to a size that conveniently fit a fast food restaurant's cardboard packaging. It may be seen as a Retro-futurist dystopian vision of a genetically modified world
