Just a Déjà vu Cariño explores the multiple combination possibilities of the syllables that shape the title, focusing on their phonetic qualities, like an unfolding mantra.

In parallel, whispered voices incorporate excerpts of famous texts which question the nature of reality as Zhangzi’s Butterfly Dream parable and fragments of Descartes’s meditations. These texts emerge to the sounding surface as unintelligible words with a ghostly presence, and gradually this poetic body becomes the whole sounding surface.
