In Yamanashi prefecture, Shine Muscat are being stolen from vineyards. So farmers there are looking towards drone technology and thermal imaging to thwart the perpetrator. And in Tokyo, photographer Osamu Kanemura pictures an urban landscape spinning out of control with his latest exhibition 'Sold Out Artist' at Cave-Ayumi Gallery. His uses video and sound not to reproduce a single image of the city but to trick the mind into thinking the city he sees is somewhere we might recognize, even remember. A playful proposition which, to paraphrase Ralf Hütter of Kraftwerk, is all about friendship and excitement — "we play with images [and] images play with us”.
