Created and conceived by artist Ryotaro Muramatsu, the Dandelion art pieces are planted (installed) at specific locations. Exhibit attendees use their smartphones to simulate blowing on the dandelion, sending its fluff in real-time to specific exhibit locations around the world. A symbol of peace, the dandelion fluff travels to destinations, spreading the seeds of peace all over the world.
