Artist's Description

Inspired by a very old “Fancy Dress Party” joke and democracy’s view of those in absolute power. Conceived and executed after all the Christmas loot was wrapped and I had just a little too much time on my hands.

Taken, with no expense spared, in the kitchen counter studio.

Cornwall, Ontario, Canada
December 23, 2010

Subject: a fingerling potato, about 2" long.

“Head” gear: latex finger cot.

Backdrop: the old faithful ratty black velvet.

Stand: Waring Pro knife sharpener under said ratty

Additional aids: pushpin to hold fingerling in place
