Peter Root: Plot

Artist Peter Root has created an incredibly detailed potato-carved Metropolis using 176lbs of spuds, a kitchen knife and a bicycle repair kit. Details include homes, office blocks and places of worship. Although the art installation named "Plot" was created in Istanbul, Peter says his creation wasn't modeled on the Turkish city, but rather influenced by various aspects of the city. Speaking about the project Peter says, “I chose potatoes because they are available in abundance and are amazing things to sculpt with. “They can be chopped, carved, sliced, drawn into, balanced, dried.”
