Award Reason

While this work is about artificial life, it is filled with sensations that are so delicate, soft, and fragile yet unforgettable. In this age of crisis where the concept of human beings has been greatly shaken due to the rapid growth in biotechnology, including cloning and research involving human embryos, and where proliferation and life are on the verge of separation, this work has a unique view that tries to listen to the cries of a life as a totality of history, memory, and realistic experiences of now. Such a view deserves special recognition. The punch line at the end also left behind it unaccountable lingering feelings.
