Gormley is best known for his Angel of the North statue, but I first got to know his work through his statue Sound II which is in the crypt of Winchester Cathedral. Also, since I've been in Winchester, there's been a wonderful exhibit of his Domain Field which was quite otherworldly against the backdrop of the medieval castle hall. I applied back in February when I saw the story on the BBC.
At the time I signed up mostly as a gesture of support for the idea, although I decided at the time that IF (at the time I thought it was a very big IF!) I did get picked, and it didn't clash with anything else, that I would do it.
Luckily I've got a very quiet slot, since I'm planning something very boring :-)
