Artist is writing and rewriting the words Tito, Tata, (“Daddy” in English) obsessively.

Similarities of these worlds, both in acoustic and visual ways are pushing the artist to repeat the action over and over again.

In an earlier video, Memories, rhythmic repetition of sound and gesture of writing down the words Tito and tata (“dad” in English), turns the words into sound material for a pop song on which the artist is dancing. Again is the big subject of the authoritative father figure in the private and public, political sense, of social and personal amnesia, pushed into background, covered and erased by easy listening.
