Go up and dance
Climbing up the steps. It is an act that many of us have experienced in our childhood. The free-spiritedness of the woman dancing on the steps of the seaside, as if she were a child again, made me feel nostalgia mixed with longing.
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.
