Beds in Belgium for Storm Thorgerson exhibition eventOn the subject of Storm tie in with his current exhibition in Ostend, Belgium, on Wednesday night the cover of Pink Floyd's 1987 album A Momentary Lapse Of Reason was brought back to life (in slightly varied style) on the local beach.

As BD contributors Jan Hollevoet and Vince Delhaye told us, the cover was the inspiration for a very special evening. Using 150 beds, a small, less expensive number than the 700 or so used in 1987, they were set up on the beach in an admittedly different orientation than Storm's original. One of the sponsors, Eastpak, was behind the event, where a few lucky people got an invitation to be part of the setting and could "sleep under the stars" for the night if they wanted to.

The picture to the right, from Eastpak's Facebook page, gives an impression of what the scene was like. The local press also covered the event, and you can read more over at the Standaard website.
