I feel like this definitely needs some explanation in order to be understood so here you go:

The red wool represents love (therefore it's around the chest..where the heart is), the black one work and other general things that keep us from reaching happiness.
People often find themselves imprisoned and just want to break out from every day life, yet there are some factors that hinder us from doing that: in this picture it's love and work.
However, we often forget that WE are responsible for our happiness and for our own lives, thus the balls of wool in my hands. Kinda like the german saying "Jeder ist seines Glückes Schmied" (don't know how to translate that).

I've felt so stuck lately and this kind of helped me break out from my usual photography routine. It took awkwardly long to "build" the "set" as I kept stumbling over the strings every time I headed over to my camera to take a look at the pictures haha

I'm SO happy with the outcome, might be my all-time favourite so far
