The Greek word Χώρα (Khôra) with a lot of philosophical meanings is one of the inspirations ofthis work. Khôra could mean a « no man’s land » and it would also be like a receptacle, a space, a place; a matrix that put together all the matter that it is continuously in motion. Khôra is a travel into another world, far and unknown, where we find a desolate land.
However, it is possible to rise up and think that everything is possible, and as Icarus, try to touch the sun and get it. And this time, there will be no falling down.
