Pink Floyd “A Momentary Lapse of Reason” Limited Fine Art Print – Signed by Storm Thorgerson
Medium: Giclee print using 6 colour pigment inks on Somerset enhanced 330gsm

The Pink Floyd image for the album cover reflected a line of lyric visions of an empty bed and became a vision of empty beds, a
huge number of beds stretching across the landscape.
Storm Thorgerson wanted the right kind of beds Victorian, wrought iron, hospital type beds, beds for patients, beds for mad
people, beds for dreamers. 700 beds were taken on two trucks to Saunton Sands in Devon, England, and put on the beach one
by one, complete with bedding and arranged in the shape of a river, as a river bed. Also needed were three tractors, thirty helpers,
dogs, handlers, models and one microlite.
Coincidentally, this is the same location used by Alan Parker for the military sequences in the Wall movie. With everything finally
assembled and in place and every single bed in position, all was quickly abandoned due to the onset of English rain with visibility
reduced to about 500ft not far enough even to see the end of the line of beds. Two weeks later the whole procedure was repeated
and a result was achieved. All this whilst the tide was turning. The picture is 5/4 colour transparency on wide angle with available
daylight. Beds to dream in, or beds to recover in. notes Storm Thorgerson. Real beds in a real place looking somewhat unreal.
The album hit the No.3 spot on Billboard in October 1987.
