Ta-ku (Regan Mathews) from Australia and Repeat Pattern (Chad Imes) from Japan – two beings with an aptitude for making the most poignant beats and now, a collaborative collection of books that feature their photography of the world’s cities. No.Sleep traces the lifecycle of a city over a 24-hour period, marking the critical moments when the sun changes sides and the happenings in between. I wonder how the two multifaceted artists ponder the elusive meaning behind routines when they see a crowd that keeps going until the final lid shuts or someone that wanders off the beat and track, festooned with uniform aberrations, mind up in smoke. No.Sleep Nihon is the first release – see Tokyo through their lens.
