The 72 posters that compose Cite/Site display enlarged fragments of highly-circulated digital images and quotations. All are visual or discursive artifacts of feminine interdiction—that is, moments when women tried to speak on behalf of themselves, or behalf of each other, and were not believed. The work is organized into four stanzas, three rows of six posters each.
