Ms Jacobs spent three years collecting the exhaustive list of words--from friends, family, dictionaries, and strangers on the street (she asked what were the worst names they'd been called). Since 1998 she has created 9 different hats. The artist writes "In this body of work I intend to expose the tenacious, white, patriarchal power structure by using language as my witness."
