Higher and higher and newer buildings, in my opinion, are dull scenery with no breath of life in the city. Most of the time, I don't feel the interaction with the modern city. I regard the city as a "body". Memory, growth, desire and breath are only small vitality in the shadow corner. I suddenly want to collect the "breath of life" in the city. Starting from this group of photos, I record the memory of the city and my memory, and integrate my desire into the life of the city.
Judged by Tim Barber:
Inspired by the Grand Prix, Takahashi Miki’s work, I thought it would be fun and interesting to make a compilation of the widely diverse and eclectic work submitted for this contest. When edited and organized, the “memory” submissions, sent in from dozens of artists, become a kind of collective-memory-collage, a dream sequence of disparate clues from a kaleidoscopic narrative.
