The ocean was a place where I could be myself since I was a child, a place where I could feel the love of my family. The friendships that I built over a long period of time in the short life that I was born into that I never showed my family. Not everything will change just because I'm going to Tokyo, but I hope that the world, which will certainly change, will remain the same, even just a little, and that the relationship between me and the world will remain the same. I hope that the world we meet in the future will be a good one. (2021/01/10)

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.
