- Comment from Grand Prize winner, Dina Bova ( Israel)
"It is a melody of autumn - a story about elderly couple living together all Life, each in his personal world, each with his own secrets. It's also a story about immigrants living in a tiny apartment, still keeping their old festive clothes and other memorable things from the previous life. It's a story of people who live modest life, but with dignity. It's a story that has both - sadness and smile… In this artwork the spheres serve as metaphors for dissociation from the outside world and even from each other. This work is one of my favorites and very important to me. Its story touches me deeply. So I'm very happy that it was recognized in such a respected competition."
- Judge's comment on Grand Prize winner
"Our Judges loved this image. It tells so many stories. It is at once traditional and respecting of the elders set in a classic living room, yet whimsical with the reference to space travel. It points to our future while honoring our past. Indeed deserving of the Grand Prize."
