A household cabinet containing a zoetrope mechanism is mounted on the wall above a coffee table. With its doors ajar, the mechanism projects images downwards onto the cloth doilee on the coffee table below. Silhouetted images of a woman struggling within the space of the oval doilee repeatedly loop: as she attempts to run forward out of the frame, she is yanked backwards by her hair.

Mixed media: wood kitchen cabinet, coffee table, cotton doilee, wood, motor, light, lens, fan, mirrors, steel, film, vinyl record, velvet, 72 x 36 x 36 inches.
