LO.LI.TA: “The tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth.” Lolita. Vladimir Nabókov.

Lolita, the one we all think of when pronouncing that name, is written with three painful syllables. Lolita, a diminutive of Dolores, is pronounced with a painful sensuality. A phoneme is a mental image of a sound, and phonemes, as all sounds, lack meaning. Lo.Li.Ta is at the same time signifier and signified, a sound with great capacity for providing images: innocence, objectified beauty and degradation.

DEATH: there are eternal images; an inert body is one of these images. To admire its beauty and observe its unprotectedness makes we who look fragile. Death works with this essence; that of forcing us to look at beauty, fragility and loss.
