Design for the smallest parcel of "real estate" ever!!!

In an effort to redefine the very basic concept of space we’re offering you the chance to take 20 square inches of "real estate" to let your ideas run wild. Each entry is limited to only 20 square inches of space, but multiple entries are allowed. (1$ per square inch for the total of $20)

Your entries will share "real estate" with individuals (designer + non-designer), companies, advertisers, and people from all walks of life as a part of our “Square Inches of Love” project. We will accept registeration / submission until the assigned deadlines or until we run out of square inches on our 1000 by 1000 square inch grid.
Every single entry will be published on the online grid, on the physical “quilt” and on the “List of Love”.
We’re calling the final public exhibition a “quilt” for now, however, your submissions will inspire the eventual form.

The winning entry will receive additional publication along with other prize values, to be announced.
The jurors for the competition will be announced after October 31.

The evaluation of the proposals will be focused on their innovation + creativity.

Parameters to consider:

The main concept is the out-of-the-box definition / speculation for SPACE.
Think of this as a space for:
-    designing
-    making a statement
-    speculating about the future
-    challenging the issues of boundaries + negotiation
-    public interaction
-    open dialogue
-    advertisement
-    collapsing the virtual + real worlds
-    social movement
-    educating the general public about the power of design
-    making a mark on a monumental object

Design for ADAPTABILITY + for the project’s IMPLANTATION in an urban environment.
