Dandelion art for world peace

The interaction art object “DANDELION” has been installed in various locations including Tokyo, Singapore, and Paris, France.

To date, 19 locations around the world have participated. A total of 665,095 people (as of November 16, 2021) have participated through online and offline activities from around the world.We are also pleased to announce the participation of Japantown in San Francisco, U.S.A., this winter.

Japantown San Francisco is one of the most historic Japanese neighborhoods in the world. In the landmark Peace Plaza, located in the center of the area, stands the Peace Pagoda, a tower donated by Japan in 1968 as a symbol of peace after World War II.

In this area, where we pray for world peace, “DANDELION” art of dandelion, a symbol of peace, will be planted to deliver the flower of peace to the world.



The “DANDELION PROJECT” art project by Ryotaro Muramatsu / NAKED is based on the concept of a “world full of peace” connected beyond all barriers in these days of increasing fragmentation.Since the fall of 2020, the exhibition has been presented at MIYASHITA PARK and Tokyo Tower in Tokyo, Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, and Nijo Castle, a World Heritage Site in Kyoto.

“Dandelion” an art object made of dandelions, is installed around the world.It is a networked art project in which people who experience it deliver their prayers for peace to the world as digital flowers in real time.

Digital dandelion fluff flown by the participants will be connected to various locations through the network, and the art of peace flowers will bloom around the world.(*”DANDELION” is an artwork in which seeds dance by blowing on cotton wool, but as a precautionary measure against infectious diseases, the experience is made to dance when the visitor holds up his or her smartphone.)
