THEME SUMMARY

at Home

Since the COVID-19 pandemic from 2020, our lives have changed drastically. The altered everyday is now slowly becoming the new ordinary. The ordinary that we have lost, the bonds with the people around us that remain unchanged despite the hardship, or the new ways of life. They could be the resources for us to think about our future. We are living through a transient life; we cannot live the same moment twice. Now, a time in which our concept of the everyday is shaken, contemplate your “DAILY” lives and reflect back on one’s own surroundings.
[Submission Period] from June 27 to August 22
[Application fee] 2,000JPY per entry
