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 significantly more time, people are made to deal with their own being. In doing so, one or the other will reach 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 take root, to ground us? From the interaction of madness and inner peace, a trans- and multidisciplinary art project has come alive, with which most people who have experienced solitude all over the world can identify.

How much of our daily life is being controlled, led, or manipulated? Are our opinions, decisions, and actions our own or are they simply products that are co-created by the systems we live in. We think we know something till we find out that what we used to call our truth has already been prepared for us by a force that we have had never questioned before.
Where does the independence of our mind begin? And when has it been taken from us?
Which harm do we cause to our society, nature, and the world by not questioning transparencies?
Are we going to stay passive viewers – marionettes, or are we going to create consciously our now, so we could actively build a better future and become an influential part of history?
