The moment when dawn breaks, its clear blue color attracts people. It is the highlight of this moment that comes to mind as a visual memory. On the other hand, the emotions that reminisce are what happened afterwards, after the dawn. In other words, it was a time when I felt both refreshed and languid, when the air was clear and my lungs were crushed with disgust. Maybe that's what it means to look back on the past. Maybe that's what it means to look back on the past. Maybe it's deeper inside, something else, something that needs to be remembered might be tucked away carefully. Perhaps it is the blue sky that should really be remembered.

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.
