Shortlist, I Will Return to the Universe, Someday by Ritsuko Matsushita
"When I was a child, I worried about my existence. The boundaries between me and the outside world seemed uncertain, and I often felt like my body was shattering. I couldn’t escape from the idea that everything was constantly changing, nothing was static. Even now, I sometimes distrust the entity “I”. Perhaps it’s only natural - we are all just a collection of elements. I exist in this form, right now, but when I die I will be reduced to elements again, scattered in the universe. I wanted to turn that fact into a work."
