June and July

These months were taken up with the application process. The application form had to be submitted to Exeter council by 23rd June, although in reality there was a degree of flexibility, and it was not until the end of July that it was confirmed that I had been given an award for this project.

I had an idea for a piece of work that I wanted to complete but I did not have any firm plans. I outlined my proposal on the application form and had a couple of phone conversations with David Whitelock. One of the stumbling blocks with the application was a requirement to have a location confirmed. I liked the idea of filming out of the viewing window in the Princesshay information centre in the High street and then siting the completed work there but I was unable to confirm this with Land Securities within the necessary time scale. I looked at other venues such as the Exeter Phoenix, Spacex and the Albert museum but ultimately it was the X-centre who had the space available and the enthusiasm to promote the event. Once this was confirmed I was told that the grant had been awarded.
