Canon on the scene
Selected Japanese designers, on invitation of Canon, have created two installations that depict all the tenderness and subtleties of nature. They have done so using elements that are entirely artificial and highly technical, in a ploy to present an extremely evocative rendering made possible by the latest in camera specifications. However impressive the feat and enticing the atmosphere, let us hope that nary a human soul is fooled.
