MEMORIES

SHORT LIST

Statement

look

Forgetting is an important memory, forgetting also requires energy, memories are scattered, memories are always moving. As an explanation of the work, I expressed the energy and existence of memory with the light coming from the head. I also expressed a sense of loss and the passage of time by reducing the number of people in the first and second pictures. The more you forget, the more you can see around you. I thought it would be nice to have such memories.

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
