SHORT LIST

Statement

Life (tbc)

Some movies and anime try to depict reality through screens. We receive information through electronic screens every single day. Dinnertime and news programs are a horrible combination. In Japan, news networks often broadcast scenes of celebrities kneeling in forgiveness from 3 different angles. It is becoming hard to distinguish between fake and real information. Yet life continues as we are hit by torrential amounts of information. (The images on digital screens are both self-portraits and fake news)

Jury selection

Originally designed as an architectural form, the screen now functions as a portal, a mode of communication, a means of surveilling and capturing information, and much more. Photographer Matano Kazuki underscores the prevalence of screens today, as well as our dependence on them, in this provocative body of work.
