In August 2018, a plot was uncovered where Medical Universities had curved down the entrance examination scores of female applicants across the board in order to reduce the number of women attendees, becoming a major piece of news. With the issue of Japan’s discrimination against women as its setting, this artwork establishes the fictional “Tokyo Medical University for Rejected Women” and presents its state of affairs.



Sputniko! creates works of design that consider and discuss society as it is transformed by technology.
