"countless people die everyday, yet those who remain live as if they were immortal." *

uu is a montage of videos and fragments of improvised music and found audio, building a parallel between the mutable flows of human desire and the given historical time in which a lifetime unfolds. combining filmed and archival footage, the videos are merged and mirrored into sequences in which encounters with political institutions (eu/un), dancing crowds, internal monologues and memento mori stretch and contract the perception of proximity and distance across different scales. participating in the same generative system is the music composed out of fragments taken from my growing archive of improvised compositions for looped vocals, percussions and guitar, a regular practice in which I plays with the idea of challenging mechanical repetition by producing and disrupting repetition itself.
