Referencing DIY ethos and the lysergic abandon of public-access television, untitled (TIATL #1) depicts a group of young protagonists from Tomorrow Is Always Too Long, a public art project and documentary musical realised in 2014 as a love letter to Glasgow, Scotland's largest city which was Collins' home at significant points in his life.
