Concept
The show is about conventional standards of happiness and status, feeling ill at ease within them and also in your own skin. It's about trying to be normal. So we decided that, as our conceptions of social normality are still mired in the mid 20th century, we should build a mid-century style room/office. Then we would have me (Angus) placed within it, looking (at first) like I belong but also looking pensive and slightly uncomfortable. Initially we were also going to cover everything in plastic so as to suggest that this was a world that I'm afraid of ruining. However, once Idil and I had built the set - we liked it so much that we thought we should just take beautiful photos of it.
