White on White (a.k.a. W.o.W. and Win!)

A participatory performance that is a traveling trade show sales booth for the game W.o.W. and Win! Combining commercial names of shades of white interior house paint with the aesthetics, rules, and formulas of the children’s board game Twister, W.o.W. and Win! is a performative investigation of whiteness, power, and the learned social vocabulary of colorism. (Conceived in collaboration with Kim Cowperthwaite of MIT, Cambridge, MA, USA.)
