The warm scenery was along with our childhood years that wind puffed away the seeds of dandelions, a symbol of spring, and carried them into the sky. The “OLED Tampopo” by cinematographer Takao Inoue is made of real dandelions and acrylic plastic, every dandelion inside is unique and different from each other. Takao Inoue carefully collects deflorate dandelions during a small time in the spring and encapsulates them into clear acrylic plastic blocks, during the process, how to avoid air bubbles is really curious and, installing an OLED light (organic light-emitting diodes) into each dandelion’s fragile stem is also a delicate work, each lamp takes about two weeks.
Takao Inoue’s works were on display at the Milano Salone 2014 and left everyone who had seen it with deepest impression and got plenty of praises. “It was not uncommon for people to be fascinated by the artwork for some time. I realized that was able to bring joy to the people who had seen the work in practice.” said Takao Inoue.
