About Color Theory:
A collaborative project by Kayla Bushey and myself, Color Theory operates as a site of education for folks who think they are perhaps being fresh, friendly, or clever by saying things like:
You are pretty for a girl.
I wish I were so I could jump far like you.
Wow, you have good hair for a girl.
Sorry, I am not really into chicks.
I have never been with a girl before.
Each statement (taken from actual + recent moments on a college campus) is inscribed on a plaque and installed at the base of one of the banners. The goal being to call attention to mindlessly repeating the toxic script of racism that still permeates our culture.
