‘All Work and No Play’ was a guerilla art installation attempted in Dubai in December 2007. At that time in Dubai, nearly all the towers under construction would leave all their lights on at night. For this installation, James and his co-conspirators sneaked into a construction site dressed as laborers, and tried to manipulate the existing building’s lighting with light filters, using the facade like a pixelated mural.
