YouFab 2018 Award Ceremony and After Party

May.31, 2024

By YouFab Global Creative Awards 2018 executive committee

Presentation by the YouFab2018 Grand Prize Winner, a YouFab recap panel discussion with Kei Wakabayashi, the new the Chief Judge, as well as an exhibition of the winning works and artist previews.

It can be off-kilter or underdeveloped. New questions are always unbalanced and lead to controversy. For what conditions was it created for and what does it rebel against? What should be questioned is the strength and depth of the “question.” (YouFab2018 Chief Judge/Kei Wakabayashi)

This year marks the 7th edition of the YouFab Global Creative Awards, which introduces exciting works by various creators from around the world who have blended the digital with the physical. This year also saw the appointment of a new Chief Judge, Kei Wakabayashi. Now that it has become easier to blur the boundaries between digital and physical fabrication through the development of tools, what kind of questions can creators come up with among various individuals, organizations, and forms?

This year’s theme for YouFab is “Polemica!! How do you rebel? And against what?” From 158 works from 32 countries, 16 works were selected based on the theme of “Clarifying a New Question”.
