Arabic numerals are probably the most universal symbols in the world. They are recognized and shared by more people in the world than any other symbol. They are widely used and indispensible tools used to mark time, calculate, solve puzzles and elaborate useful information. However, beyond these uses, the simplicity and artistic beauty of these figures have been rarely celebrated.

Have you ever captured those beautiful moments in life when random objects align to form the shape and figure of one of the 10 numerals in an unexpected or inspiring way, or the expression of the numeral happens to become a piece of art that tells a story or arouses tremendous emotions?


Create a series of creative and visually striking artwork representing the 10 Arabic numerals (from 0 to 9) to show us that numerals can tell meaningful stories and express passion and emotions.

Capture those beautiful moments when random living beings have formed the exquisite shape of a numeral, or when the numeral is expressed in such an artistic and creative way that it represents more than its mathematical meaning. Your work must be creative, visually striking and tasteful, and the numeral figure should be easily recognized and well crafted. The task is to create a series of artwork including each and every one of the 10 numerals, to make numerals more expressive.


These examples are only provided to illustrate our expectations. Please do not use them in your submission, or it will be rejected.

You can go to http://ticktackstudio.jp/gallery/ to look for inspiration and examples for making numerals more creative and fun. Think about how to manipulate everyday objects to create exquisite or fun expressions of the numerals and show your passion and creative thinking, e.g. use candies creatively to form the figure of the numeral, or create human body sculptures to form the figures and reveal their emotion. You can also look through your photo albums for inspiration or moments when the numerals have been embedded in the scenery, or you can integrate the numerals in your photos and stories.
