Framed Ocean. One minuscule section of the vast, all-connecting ocean, framed through a wooden box at a small island in Japan; yet this particularity is precisely what depicts its unique captivating reflections. Perception is similarly key to sociological research – beginning with particular bottom-up investigations, and then, widening the frame.

Third Place: Noah Powers (MSc City Design and Social Science)
