This is a piece that represents our time and mind. Time can only go forward in our society but our mind can take us to whenever the time we wish to be. The images you see in the composition are abstract but there are indication of my artist clock, city life and a few other essences of our contemporary living condition. The circle images with numbers represent my name, time and 36 hours a day I wish to have. If we move and think faster, 24 hours a day can turn into 36 hours a day.
