Jury Comment: "The most powerful stories allow us to see the world and its vast array of experiences through someone else's eyes. One project took us on that journey in a most unexpected way. Through its creative use of a medium and its meticulous and elegantly crafted audio landscape. Through its dedication to nuance and aesthetic. Through its care and compassion not only for the protagonist, but for those who take the journey with him. Because as the piece so eloquently ends: 'After all, being human is not seeing, it's loving.'"
