Bristol Mean Time
2007 - 2009

Bristol Mean Time was an opportunity for a London based artist to spend three months in Bristol developing a new film and video work.

The three artists used Picture This as a studio and production space and worked closely with Picture This staff as a production team. Following each residency the works have been exhibited at Picture This Atelier.

The Bristol Mean Time* residency allowed the artist time, budget and space to focus on the production and realisation of a particular idea within the supportive context of Picture This, with the result of generating exciting new works by artists at a critical stage in their practice.

The residency was made possible through Picture This working in partnership with Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN).

* The clock over the Corn Exchange in Bristol has two minute hands. The black minute hand shows Greenwich Mean Time while the red minute hand shows Bristol time. Until the railway network standardised time across the country Bristol time was 10 minutes ahead of Greenwich Mean Time.
