Cassi's piece of interest

I really was drawn to Sonja Peterson's The Underground Plot of the Roya Pommes Frites, 2009. It creatively combined two one dimensional objects to created a piece with layers and thus depth. This piece uniquely formed a world in which potatoes were the center and represented the social structure of what is involved in producing this element of nature. It engaged me with all of the intricate designs in the cut paper that allowed us to enter the world in which she was creating. The two tone colors create an extra element of depth and space.

Questions:

1. What was you inspiration behind creating this piece?
2. Is there a story behind the world that was created in this piece?
3. What was your reasoning for your color choice for this piece?
