A Life on the Water


Wide Sky Design has completed a new audio-visual installation for the National Trust on Reliance Barge, Dapdune Wharf. Evoking the atmosphere of life on a 20th century Wey barge is quite a challenge in a confined space. Soundscapes, including archive interviews and a novel projection system has delivered a fresh approach to the interpretation at this site. The end result is a captivating experience where memories absorbed by the barge throughout its lifetime appear to ‘seep’ back out of its very fabric.
