Japanese artist Yukio Takano (previously) has a knack for recreating the delicate properties of mushrooms with dyed resins illuminated from the inside with hidden LED lights. The electrical parts are then hidden inside precise driftwood bases that usually incorporate a elaborate retro “on/off” change. Takano first exhibited his lights 12 years up to now and they also now disappear as fast as he creates them. Sadly, the gadgets are too delicate to ship overseas, so he solely produces and sells them domestically.
You’ll see a behind-the-scenes tour of his studio here (in Japanese) and see additional footage of his extra moderen works on Tokyobling, Silver Shell Gallery, and ocasionally on his blog.
