Ready to Hang
I wanted to keep my expression minimum but loudest in this piece. It represents the time and our consciousness in today's lives. I am exposed to busy and fast moving urban lifestyle. 24 hours a day is not enough for me, however, if we move and think faster, 24 hrs/day can turn into 36 hrs/day. The red color represents the sunset time. This is the time when people's energy shifts from working mode to the nightlife. I enjoy this particular hour more than anything, although I find meanings in every second of the day. The circle represents my clock and identity. I hope you enjoy this piece.
