A site specific installation.
In the reference section of a public library, a small video monitor is secured to a table holding a
20-volume set of the Oxford English Dictionary.
The video depicts a figure leafing through
Geschlechtskunde, a 1926 sexology book by Magnus Hirschfeld. The looping video dissolves to a close up of a button on a coat encircled by synonyms for the term 'lesbian'.
