I sit in Portcullis House. The sun is shining and it seems that everyone who should be here is in today. There is a buzz.
A BBC newsreader sits on the table next to me fresh from working all night covering the European elections; Nigel Farage and UKIP seem to be the big talking point!
I have a positive meeting with Matthew Morgan, Commercial Operations Manager for Parliament. We discuss my ideas, the sites and spaces.
We talk about the public; how they interact with the building and how they can engage most effectively with the history of the space. I talk for the first time about the notion of sound within the work. I was so pleased that he got it; he talked about Bruce Nauman. I felt that I was with someone who understood what I did.
He liked the idea that the artwork could be a living memorial to suffrage, rather than something that has been ticked off the list of achievements. This is something that needs to be worked at.
