Untitled (Proposal 1, 2 & 3)
2007


In the months before the Brighton University degree show I proposed the installation of a series of rope ladders and bridges creating a new journey through the institution. The root ran from the university entrance, out side and across the grounds, back in through the Sculpture studios and ended through a window onto the street at the back of the building. The sculpture was never intended to be used or climbed upon.

However it was rejected on the grounds that there was not enough time to process the proposal. The work displayed became the documentation of the proposal and the journey that idea took through its navigation of institutional procedure.
