Watch in? is a listening application that aifoon developed for the Permeke museum in Jabbeke. The listening application consists of an AudioCollier, a pendant with a speaker that the museum visitor carries around his neck. The speaker plays a sound composition through which the visitor enters into an audiovisual relationship with the work of Permeke.

The sound composition dictates nothing; it makes suggestions, it teases and questions, and it activates the associative frameworks of the visitors. By wearing the AudioCollier the visitor becomes a listener as well as a performer and a composer who also determines the experience of the other visitors. Different visitors, each with an AudioCollier, become a walking surround system.
