Friend in a pot of Potato Diaries


The process of growing potato will be the focus of the project Potato Opera, offering the audience to grow one in a pot for themselves; to enjoy the summer together, making friends on the way and entertaining them with stories and pictures. Everyone involved in the project will receive a pot and a plant of potato – the first potato or the patriarch. Its well-being must be the focus of the person growing it for entire duration of the project – from May till October, when the potato diary must also be kept. All the ‘activities’ of the potato need to be reflected in its project home page profile.
