Zsofia Kollar: 'During my research I discovered that this community is formed by individuals, who are experiencing their gender identity variously. There is no two the same person who feels the same way as the other. That’s why I would like to focus on the uniqueness of these individuals. By looking at the LGBTQ community I found great diversity. I would like to cherish this diversity and point out the qualities in that'.

'The contribution of the winner was social, the winner did not achieve for his own good, but for a collective goal. My aim with my design is to represent this social effort and create a prize that can be shared amongst the people of the community or those who supported the winner’s intention.'

'With my project I would like to involve the whole Netherlands and its people. I would like to cherish the diversity in people and point out that every human touch leaves traces in others. Thus, it’s important how we treat each other without any judgment on their sexual preference. Based upon my grid over the Netherlands, I’m visiting several different coordinates of the country and asking people to treat a soft porcelain as it would be another human being.'
