Don't take anything for granted. In order to remember this, I took pictures of the time when we separated and went our separate ways. We thought we were taking good care of each other, but we really weren't. We made this huge decision to settle the matter. At times, it's heartbreaking to go our separate ways with the pain of nine years. But I will carry it with me.

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.
