She sit on a chair her legs over the arms rest, looking out to the left.

  • We see Alev lying on the floor with her hairs spread out and tuning forks arranged like a sun dial around her head, on top of her hair. She smiles a gentle smile, wearing a checkered and flower patterned blouse. The floor is white, it is a white quilt but barely noticable as such.

    Find the EP here:
