Momentum raises the stakes. Travel, the process of being in one place and then next in another, is change—things happening. Everything is always in motion, from electrons to planets, all barreling through vastness.
Things spin, whirl, and tick in circles like clockwork. They move in waves, gently ebbing and flowing, or blasting buildings and eardrums, and with intense percussive force. Time moves somewhat reliably in one direction. People move, and carry things with them. The myriad of ways in which matter, energy, ideas, and creatures move is the stuff that shapes the entirety of our physical world.
Stillness is just the illusion that we believe in long enough to catch our breath.
Nothing is still, and everything is changing.

ANNUAL CASH AWARD: The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one significant cash prize ($5000) to a single work selected as the ‘best of the entire season’.
