The Dove in Draws project is a temporary artistic action expected to occur at ground zero of the the downtown of the city of Sao Paulo - Sé, Marco Zero - on May 30, 2010, with the placement of temporary metal gutter pieces painted in red around this landmark, which serves as a feeder to the many doves that inhabit the place to form another drawing. This project aims to establish also a "virtual" connection through zero landmarks of several cities that have the presence of doves, whose action / demarcation in each place becomes a point.

Jet lag medically referred to as desynchronosis is a physiological condition which is a consequence of alterations to circadian rythms; it is classified as one of the circadian rhytms sleep disorders. Jet lag results from rapid long-distance transmeridian (east-west or west east) travel, as on a jet plane.
When traveling across a number of time zones, the body clock will be out of synchronisation with the destination time, as it experiences daylight and darkness contrary to the rhythms to which it has grown accustomed: the body's natural pattern is upset, as the rhythms that dictate times for eating, sleeping, hormone regulation and body temperature variations no longer correspond to the environment nor to each other in some cases. To the degree that the body cannot immediately realign these rhythms, it is jet lagged.
The speed at which the body adjusts to the new schedule depends on the individual; some people may require several days to adjust to a new time zone, while others experience little disruption.
