Award Reason

This work perfectly integrates the antithesis images of realism/unrealism, inorganic/organic in a very elaborately designed composition, and has a very high quality finished form. Simultaneously, this work does not push digital technology to the fore, but uses orthodox techniques such as collages to express in a direct manner, and helps us rediscover that technology is only a means.
