The figure is part human body and part artist’s mannequin which can be twisted into different shapes representing the feeling of being manipulated by others and by events. The background relates to that of The Scream with constant white noise added. The twisted wire and cord is the tangle of thoughts and worries to be battled with. The crystal in the drawstring bag represents the spirit or life energy trying to emerge from the tight grip of the darkness within.
