2015 Art In Structure™ design competition

The concept of space as understood by physics, is that it is undefined until occupied by matter or energy. We invite you to boldly go where others fear to tread and, using only metal, create a structure to define your concept of space.

We challenge you to explore the connection between metals and the urban landscape, using products normally hidden, intended only for structural purposes.

In a New Zealand first, we're making it possible to throw away the rulebook, defy the laws of gravity and suspend the viewer's belief. How? By creating a virtual sculpture park, allowing us to showcase the design submissions in situ, without physical confines.

We want to see how the amazing versatility of steel can enhance our experience of the world around us.

Proudly brought to you by Easysteel, in September 2015 we launch the inaugural Art in Structure design competition.

There are two categories for entry:

Category 1: Professional Category

This is the category for companies actively working in the metals industry in New Zealand (including but not limited to steel fabricators, sheet metal workers and general engineering companies). Submissions can be either individual or firm entries.

Prize:

1st Prize $2,500

2nd Prize $750

Category 2: Emerging Designers

This category is for engineering students and emerging designers within four years of graduation.

Prize:

1st Prize $2,500

2nd Prize $750

Group submissions are allowed in both categories but will be limited to teams of up to 4 members.

Professional sculptor James Wright will judge the designs and select those that will feature in the virtual sculpture park. A range of finalists' entries will be featured allowing public voting that will count toward the overall category winners.

Easysteel will fabricate the winning design in each category.

The fabricated sculptures will eventually be auctioned off to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House charity.

GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION

In designing a piece for the 2015 Art In Structure™ Design Competition, the following requirements and specifications should be observed:

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

In the first instance to enter the competition you need to submit designs in the file type specified in the entry conditions on www.artinstructure.nz. If you make the finals you may be required to submit the following:

• Both design drawings and working drawings sufficient to completely and accurately describe all aspects of the piece– this is to ensure the integrity of your design should it be selected for fabrication.

• A complete and explicit list of all specified materials.

All entries must be submitted by 5:00 pm on 18 December 2015 via the www.artinstructure.nz website.

DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS

1) Each design should be for a piece of sculptural artwork that utilizes only metal.

The creative design brief is as follows:

Entrants are invited to respond with a design that expresses a personal interpretation, in metals, of either the concept of Form or Function.

The 3D concept renders need to be capable of being fabricated to a finished product if selected as the winning entry – the material should be primarily available from Fletcher Easysteel's stock within New Zealand.

2) Although the initial display of the submissions will be of a "virtual" nature, the goal for the winning designs is that these will be fabricated as per the original design. The designs should therefore to be subject to the normal gravitational and physical rules of working with metals.

3) Dimensions:

For Function we are looking for innovative functional works with a scale constraint of 2.4mH x 1.5m x 1.5m.

The Form category allows a larger rendered concept of a contemporary / abstract work with a scale limit of 5.0H x 3.0m x 3.0m.–

However we don't wish to put any constraints on creativity and entries can be scaled accordingly should they be selected to be rendered for the virtual sculpture park.

The Promoter reserves the right to scale the dimensions of a winning submission to the extent reasonably required for fabrication.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY GUIDELINES – Art In Structure™ design competition

Intellectual Property in a sculptural design can result in rights through trade marks, design registrations and copyright. All entries to theArt In Structure™ competition must be original works and must not infringe the intellectual property rights of any other party.

1. Copyright

Copyright exists in many different types of work and has a limited life span. Copyright usually expires 50 years after the death of the author of the original copyright work, or 25 years after the first 50 copies of a three dimensional version of the copyright work produced for the purposes of sale or hire.

Copyright infringement results where a design is a copy of an entire or substantial part of an original work, there is a similarity with that original work, there is a connection between the original work, and the new work.

All entries to the Art In Structure™ competition must be original and therefore free from potential copyright infringement.

2. Trade Mark Rights

A trade mark is a particular word, phrase or logo which connects a trader with the goods or services which it provides. When deciding on a name for your creation in the Art In Structure™ competition it is important to consider whether the name is likely to infringe anyone else's trade mark rights. If the name is the same as or similar to an existing trade mark then the use of that name may infringe trade mark registrations or breach other fair trading legislation.

All entrants to the Art In Structure™ competition should ensure the name for the entry is not likely to infringe anyone else's trade mark rights. You can visit the Intellectual Property Office's website ( www.iponz.govt.nz) to check whether a registered trade mark exists. Entrants should also be aware of unregistered trade marks in use and take steps to avoid infringing any other parties rights.

3. Design Rights

A particular three dimensional look of a sculpture or application of a pattern to a surface may be the subject of registered design protection. Where a particular look is the subject of registered design protection and an entry is based on that registered design, the entry may infringe the registered design.

All entrants to the Art In Structure™ competition should ensure the design is original and not derived from registered designs.

4. Moral Rights

Where an entrant has based its design on an existing literary or artistic work the moral rights of the author of the original work will exist. The author of the base work needs to be attributed in the entrance design portfolio. Entrants are responsible for ensuring the entry complies with these guidelines and the entry does not infringe a third party's intellectual property rights. Easysteel reserves the right to disqualify any entry which does not conform to these guidelines or which infringes a third party's intellectual property.

5. Registered Intellectual Property Rights

Patent and design applications must be lodged before the subject of the patent and/or design is publicly available. The entrant is responsible for making an application to obtain registration of any intellectual property rights relating to the product that has been entered before public disclosure.
