In times of narrowness and solitude the couch proves to be the center of the universe in almost every home. Spatially cornered and enriched with an abundance time, individuals are compelled to confront their own existence. Some may find themselves pushed to their limits. What if, however, one realizes that these limits are nothing more than the call of ourselves to get to know us better, to establish roots, to ground ourselves? From the interaction of madness, chaos and inner peace, a trans- and multidisciplinary art project has blossomed - a resonant reflection that speaks to individuals worldwide who have experienced solitude.

How much autonomy do we truly have in our daily lives? Are our thoughts, decisions, and actions genuinely ours, or are they molded by the systems that surround us? Our perceived truths may, in fact, be prepackaged by forces we've never questioned. Where does the independence of our minds originate, and when did it slip away? What societal, environmental, and global consequences arise when we fail to question the transparency around us? Will we remain passive observers, mere puppets, or will we deliberately shape our present to construct a more impactful future and actively contribute to shaping history?
