In memory of a hovering mood
2020 will be hard for everyone due to COVID-19.And these series of photos were taken after my friends and I had gone through a period of national travel bans and self-quarantine. I captured the moment when I saw their confusion. On the way I saw the state of my friend and imagined that perhaps they, like me, was pondering whether the epidemic would become a regular feature in everyone's lives, and that her hesitant expression was in fact the inner activity of each of us.
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.
