MUJI AWARD 03. We would like to thank everyone from around the world who sent in so many entries. The theme was "Found" … from nature; knowledge from those that came before us; from one's own unique culture; or from people's consciousness of the unconscious. We live today in an age where we seek to be the very best in the game of life, while still holding on to consideration and discretion on a variety of levels. A straw the way nature made it, a garbage bag the same shape of that nostalgic milk container, bed mats and detergent made of plant matter, grandpa's nail hooks - I was very happy to see that this way of thinking was evident in a great many of the works entered into the competition. I would once again like to express my appreciation to all those who participated in the competition.
