FAO Janet Stimson,

I am an art student at Bath Spa University with a proposal for a project that requires two hundred and fifty of your PINE FRESH magic tree air-fresheners.  Being a student of limited funds I am unable to buy these at the retail price and would like to know whether you are interested in sponsoring the project detailed below.  Your support would of course be credited whenever and wherever the work is shown, as well as being mentioned in any written material or interviews generated by the project.

The Project:

The exhibition will run from December 1st 2011 to January 1st 2012.  In one room of the gallery I shall install 250 air-fresheners, hung from the ceiling at eye level.  In the other I shall install a dozen Christmas trees.

The installation is part of a series of works pitting artificial experience against reality.  There is a good chance that the project will be recreated for the Bath School of Art and Design degree show in June 2012, which takes place at Bath Spa University and The Truman Brewery Gallery in Brick Lane, East London.

Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you soon,

Trevor H Smith.

Thank you for your email. Unfortunately, the brand owner is unable to support your project and therefore we are unable to supply you with Forest Fresh Magic Tree.
