For our Autumn 2013 mini commission artist Jan Uprichard subverted our daily routine with a dreamlike film of a sea view ordinarily unobtainable in Bedford.

The film popped up at various locations in Bedford town centre for a week in October; the bus station, British Heart Foundation, the council one stop shop on Horne Lane and waiting area in Borough Hall, where there was also the chance to make and keep your own pocket sized sea view – a flip book version of the film.

At first glance the film seemed like a still image, but over time the peaceful, idyllic scene that it depicted started to go in and out of focus. There was a lighthouse with a light shining off and on whilst she was filming, which was allowed to disrupt the focus of the camera, this added to the dreamlike quality of the image.

Here’s a film of the commission in situ:
