The audience is invited to arrive and before the event begins (and before the sun sets), in order to view the windows. Each one contains an image made of transparent color. A lady, a metronome, and a hand are flanked by the double sided figure of a speech prompter. The iconography is based on props, video of whose performance accompanies the second in a series of iterative lectures. ‘Monologues’ of the title refers to the lecture itself but also the words of historical feminine figures that inhabit a broad field of research.
