Which was the rule, that the buttons diorama violated?
orkitekt Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012  Professional Artist
Inner Juxtaposition of Memory or the so called Buttons diorama was constructed from ordinary white cardboard for the walls and glass screens for the buttons support. The glass is 4mm thick (or 0.15748 inches) . It was specially ordered and designed for 3 days in ESPEHO Glass Company in Sofia, Bulgaria. The glass screens are strong enough to play their main role: be the spine that tightens the composition into a whole immovable solid organism: [link]

This work can fly and reach each point of the world whole and unhurt.

I think it was the glass, it wasn't safe for shipping??? Or maybe it (the glass) wasn't made by you.

A post from Moonbeam13 on the contest article:
"Our official rules state that the entry must be a diorama in a shoebox or in a box of the dimensions of a shoebox as specified in the Construction Guidelines. Cardboard, as stated in the Construction Guidelines, refers to a material that has the properties of cardboard -- i.e., something that's lightweight and malleable yet stiff. The rules state that we accept any shoebox, even if not cardboard. We presented cardboard as a logical and relatively affordable option in the guidelines, however, we did state that all items used in the Work may originate in any medium provided the medium is safe for international transportation through the mails. After conferring with the judges, the only entry of concern involves the use of glass and we will be selecting a backup to take it's place. Thank you for your concern and feedback, this is exactly why we post semi-finalists to help us catch anything we may have missed during the gruelling task of judging"

You mean, they didn't even give you an explanation for why they pulled it? That is kind of cold. :/
