※★ Creator / Artist name │ Grand Prize Winning Year / Country – Region
★ EPER DIGITAL │ 2022 / Hungary
We will continue to explore what connects humans and machines, digital and material?
Through music, how do contradictory things come into harmony and how do they interact with the space and objects?
★ THE FOX, THE FOLKS │ 2021 / Indonesia
Work Title：HAPPY? HAPPY!
Happy? Happy! , expresses the joy of living that is often forgotten. Happiness comes from unexpected events and interactions with people. The angry tiger looks back on himself, participates in parades and parties, and spreads his happiness to those around him. Even if something unpredictable happens, it may lead to new fun!
★ Julia Shamsheieva │ 2019 / Ukraine
Work Title：WINDOW TO U
This work is part of a series dedicated to the transformation of the world, and Japan’s support for Ukraine is a symbol of bonds that transcend distance and cultural differences. I dedicate this work to Fuminori Tsuchiko, who moved from Tokyo to Kharkiv to help the people of Ukraine, and to all those who could not remain indifferent to this great tragedy.
Kindness knows no borders, and if we all work together, we can change the world.
★ Li Cheng │ 2018 / China
Work Title：Magic Space
Flowers and plants receive various energies from the earth and air to grow, bloom, and leave seeds.
Behind the beauty of flowers is a connection with everything in their environment. This invisible energy is
Flowers magically bloom, delighting our eyes and giving us strength and hope.
★ Antaless Visual Design │ 2017 / Italia
Work Title：•EVOLVING SPACE•
The theme is deconstructivist architecture, which is a school of post-modern architecture, and we challenge our own architectural limitations of expressing the space by transforming objects, materials, and structures, and reflecting the decomposition process carried out in deconstructivist architecture on the exterior.
Deconstruction is not just a technique or a disturbing structure.
★ EuroVideoMapping │ 2016 / Germany & Ukraine
A long time ago, life that came from outer space was born on Earth. Life with common roots has evolved, but the new life forms surrounding us have many things in common and are connected by invisible networks.
Through this link we communicate and exchange information and life energy.
★ Neba Studio │ 2015 / Macao
The motif is “Ouroboros”, a symbol of ancient mythology. The snake eating its tail represents a link that has no beginning or end, and symbolizes eternal cycles, rebirth, infinity, and endless connections.
It links with the world, nature, life and death, and asks how humans should connect with the world.
★ Maxim Guislain │ 2014 / Belgium
Work Title：Butterfly effect
Everything is connected. Even the simple flapping of a butterfly’s wings can have big consequences. This project explores how this butterfly influences buildings, setting off a chain reaction that evolves building facades and transports us through time and into different environments.
★ FLIGHTGRAF │ 2013 / Japan
What we imagined from the theme of “LINK” is a life game where you observe life and death.
Nowadays, when we look at the situation in the world from a bird’s-eye view, we sometimes feel as if we are being manipulated by someone else. Through this work, the audience is asked whether they are connected somewhere, or whether they were already connected.
★ Sembilan Matahari │ 2012 / Indonesia
The core of this work is to tell the story of Garuda, the pride of Indonesia. Garuda is a mythical bird that is cherished by the people of Indonesia. This expression of light, called Menyala in Bahasa, signifies a touching reunion that bridges an 11-year friendship and fosters unity.
