MEMORIES

SHORT LIST

Statement

Memory&Landscpae

Memories are projected as images in my mind by sounds, smells, conversations, and various other triggers. Happiness, sadness, delight, and sorrow. In that place, my image becomes an afterimage, and only the landscape is marking time. However, the fact that I was there at that time is unchanged and certain. The scenery in my mind comes back to life beautifully sometime. It is an important memory of my present existence.

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
