MEMORIES

SHORT LIST

Statement

Just now.

"Tada, Ima" means, the past that has just passed is as close to the present as possible. My idea of memories is that there are no sentimental memories. The momentary past that seems to be overlooked is neither my own nor someone else's. I feel that there is a future that is connected to a new and different time, or a past that no one knows exists.

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
