Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon


Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture.

This year’s lineup of speakers includes Brett Wickens (of design studio Ammunition) and Alice Rawsthorn (who writes about design for International New York Times and frieze) kicking off the opening conference on June 2nd. June 6th to 8th marks the return of the Design is Future “congresstival”, which involves 3 days of 15 speakers discussing success stories and new approaches to design, specifically focused on improving people’s lives and the world around us.
