*The artwork must have no negative impact on the building.

*Everything installed must be removable and leave no permanent damage.

*The work must be installed in a day.

*The work must be secure and safe enough to be left in a public space for 72hrs straight.

*The artwork must respond to the site and display an ambitious approach to creating new site specific work.
