Selected Work / Projects
The Studio for Arousing Tools
Drop City
CIRCA Projects
Open Air is the independent studio of designer and curator Sam Watson.

He founded the curatorial initiatives CIRCA Projects in 2009 and Drop City in 2014,
which have each developed an international reputation for their interdisciplinary
public programmes, art commissions, publishing activities and innovative working
relationships with artists and institutions.

Consequently, at the heart of the studio is a hands-on approach where close
working relationships with artists and clients enable conceptual thinking
and an authentic, project specific execution. Many of the projects began life
as a ‘work’ inside another ‘work’, produced through the extended friendships
and relationships of the practice.
