Sights and sounds unique to the place are recorded and replayed. Music is created and echoed around the building with video projected onto floors and walls as part of the tour. Watch This Space also creates uniquely atmospheric audio tours, often making use of the Internet, allowing participants to download tracks directly onto their own MP3 players to experience the tour whenever they like.

From the outset, Watch This Space sought to uncover the personal histories associated with a space and to re-create these unique atmospheres using a combination of sound, video, lighting, writing and performance.

The result is an exhilarating experience of atmospheres created and recreated and moments relived.
