I often remember the dreams I had just before I woke up. Although these dreams are based on the real world, they are different from the real world and appear as strange scenes. When I reflect on my travel experiences, the memories come back to me like a dream. The details of who I met and where I visited are often vague and fragmented images. Piecing together the fragmented memories of my travels is a way of visualizing the dream-like uncertainty of the memories.

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.
