There is a curious expression, in the German language indicating the condition - rather curious - of being at a time with "head in the clouds and feet on the ground", im wolkenkuckucksheim leben, or "you live in the land of cuckoo". The project offers a "refuge of distraction" in which to be irrational and give space to the imagination at a time when the control and our need of alert, hinder it.
