This large public space allowed expansion of the exhibition, with the addition of display cases recording a trip to revisit all Formerly‘s sites. Participation elements included a free map and guide allowing visitors to retrace the journey, and a self-guided writing project based on exploration of the local area. The exhibition launched on 11 December 2012 with a soundscaped reading, and ran from 11 December 2012 to 3 February 2013.
