▲ The Grand Prize is ​​”Fish Hammer” by Neil Mendoza, a British media artist. The movement of the goldfish and hammer work in conjunction with each other, raising interesting questions to the current human-led ecosystem.
▲ The First Prize winning work is​ “Mind in the Machine” by Ani Liu from the United States. This project uses the detected brain waves of factory workers to knit a fabric which reflects the worker’s different mental states throughout the day. It symbolizes “human manual work” in modern times where manufacturing by machines is mainstream. It reflects the contribution of all unnamed people to an economy backed by automation.
▲ The Kudan House

Built by three architects representing Japan in 1927 (Mr. Katsura Naito, Mr. Shichiro Kinoko and Mr. Kenji Imai), this mansion is a beautiful curved Spanish design and a representative work of the early days of reinforced concrete. It is a building that has carved its name in the history of Japan.
