Peter Pink: One morning I had the idea of protesting potatoes. I already was using the sunglasses. So I put the sunglasses on the potatoes and I really liked how the different organic forms of the potatoes made it as if they were different characters or personas. Each potato had a different expression, if it was skinny or fat, or grumpy or weird. So that was the beginning. Then I just became curious about what other foods could represent other characters. After a while food became interesting in itself because you are working with lots of different textures and forms and it’s all natural. I also like that food is alive and that it changes form quite fast, so the art can only be momentary.
