Although most of his works have been rather complex and difficult, this timehe 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 devicecorrectly you will be able to separate the cake from the plate and find asmall space inside. I believe while he was making this he must have beenstudying the design eagerly since he ate 7 or 8 kinds of shortcakes.Therefore the title 15 (ichi-go, one and five, also meaning strawberry inJapanese) seemed natural. Now this ichigo shortcake is in front of you, howdo you begin to eat it?
