The jury reports:

Silvia Martes display an unmistakable and original drive and seems to have an inexhaustible source of narrative material. The jury enjoyed her previous works, but advised her to immerse herself more deeply in fine art as a while, see work by a lot of other artists and, most of all, to continue studying. One of her graduation pieces was extraordinarily powerful, the short film She that comes from the green forest, on a Tuesday. The work has an urgency and great emotion, and exhibits a skilful abstraction of text. The film also includes interesting images of, among other things, houses on Curacao, and flat-bed trailers transporting construction cabins in the Netherlands.    

There were doubts about the cohesion between the various works. In some works her use of images is virtuoso, while others are less carefully crafted and the approach risks becoming clichéd. Silvia demonstrates her mastery of the craft in She that comes from the green forest, on a Tuesday.
