The video is directed by the performance artist Anne Bean and is collaboration with the artist Peter Fink and video cameraman Nick Evans .The video was used as public art three screen projection to celebrate all aspects of swimming and in particular the sport of synchronised swimming.
The three screen projection was integrated into the swimming complex lobby design as a signature public art installation but was also shown on other public art screen installations in other locations.
The project involved a close collaboration between the artists Anne Bean and Peter Fink as well as with the girl synchronised swimming team from Bristol, that represented the city and County at many national and international competitions. The shooting of the video involved the use of both thermal and underwater cameras in addition to HD. Therein aim was to capture the fluidity of the synchronised swimming as well as the fluidity of water and contrasted with the fluidity of flying flocks of birds through the sky.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
