Mensch 006 is another take on the Mitternacht character, this one in particular is a self portrait of myself right now as I attempt to be human again. Mitternacht has crafted a wall in order to keep away the outside world, a measure taken to protect a vulnerable heart (No, I am not overly subtle). From the porthole it observes the world with a scowling face, ready to identify the next probably threat. I see the flower just outside the wall as a sign that just maybe not everything on the other side needs to be feared.
