We love these amazing Dandelion fluff sculptures. Check these amazing beautiful sculptures from Japanese artist Yusuke Aonuma. Made from Dandelion fluff Aonuma harvests the light-weight plant form (known as Tanpopo in Japanese) before drying them to give him a material from which to to work with.

Aonuma then places the Dandelion fluff into acrylic slabs to create three-dimensional geometric shapes. In a recent exhibition in Tokyo titled Iki Wo Tatero which translates as ‘Breath’, Aonuma encouraged visitors to interact with these sculptures by breathing on them. In a series of various artworks lit through their translucent stems in a dark room Aonuma manages to highlight their beautiful fragility.

Aonuma has announced an upcoming exhibition in March of 2018, which will take place in the Omotesando district of Tokyo. More details on Aonuma Instagram: @anmysk
