Two repeated phrases intertwine on a paper loop: Semper Tedium (Latin for “always tedious”), referring to “women’s work” and Gröfaz, the German acronym used by Hitler of the all-powerful male warlord. These words are written & re-written hundreds of times, in multiple layers, in opposite directions around the never-ending loop of paper.
