MEMORIES

SHORT LIST

Statement

dizzy.

A group of high school girls were taking selfies in Shonan in the summer until the sun sets. The spread of smartphones and social media has turned the act of taking a picture very familiar. It has become so ordinary that it is a bit now light-hearted. However, when the day comes when we look back on the memories stored in fragments, we will feel that there still are not enough of them. When you are tired of waving to your friends and living in a fast-paced society, you will remember those memories just like a vertigo. This moment is also the vertigo confronting the past that will eventually happen.

Jury selection

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.

* This work was included in a curated collection of works selected by the judge Tim Barber from a number of submitted works. See the collection
