Walk Along A Promise

Walk Along A Promise | Performative Installation | 2015

Walk Along A Promise was a temporary installation in Princesshay shopping centre during Not Open Studios Exeter. The installation consisted of chalk lines that traced to size planned buildings and gardens for Princesshay onto the existing areas.  The plans were taken from the 1946 post war city guide for the rebuilding of Exeter produced by the town planner Thomas Sharp. The post war plans for Princesshay were radical, utopian and barely used in the subsequent rebuilding of the city.
