When all the kids had left the house, my parents started raising parakeets. Apparently, this is the fourth one. People live a long time. But I guess we gradually forget the faces we used to see every day when they are gone.
Currently working at a studio in Tokyo after graduating from a vocational school.
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.
