James Long reveals his mood board inspired by Laurie Anderson's O Superman

James Long: There is always quite an aggressive element to my work. It has a feverish mood; it's hot. The boys are in a boiler room with a fever, light's are flashing, refelctive glows make bodies appear hollow, prints make the body appear feverish. The longer they are in the boiler room the more agitated they get. They start to halluciate, they think they need big oversized coats, then they undo their boiler suits to reveal...the rest is at the show.
