Crayola Monologues

In Crayola Monologues, I use the crayon as a metaphor for exploring race in the United States. It is an experimental animation picturing individual crayons expressing how the history of color hierarchies has shaped their lives and identities. The crayons are anthropomorphized in a world much like our own, complete with prejudice, class boundaries, social hierarchies and those who fall between the lines. Crayola Monologues references history, education systems, white supremacy, and children, in an attempt to create a new mode for discussing identity in the United States.
