Although most of his works have been rather complex and difficult, this time he created a work that has a simple device. Since the exhibition theme is "Valentine", he tried to make his work pretty. When you move the device correctly you will be able to separate the cake from the plate and find a small space inside. I believe while he was making this he must have been studying the design eagerly since he ate 7 or 8 kinds of shortcakes. Therefore the title 15 (ichi-go, one and five, also meaning strawberry in Japanese) seemed natural. Now this Ichigo Shortcake is in front of you, how do you begin to eat it? -Karakuri Creation Group
