It's A Gir(d)l(e) is a video Installation that presents documentation of a performer exercising to an aerobic soundtrack on a revolving turntable dressed in a girdle and a pinstriped suit. The LCD video display and its custom housing has been designed to function as an actual balance weight. If the audience so chooses, they can weigh themselves against the video image.
