Kreyòl Lab

Kreyòl Lab was a visual instigation that took place over the course of around a year, as part of my degree requirement at RISD. Though it started with my inquiry of diglossia (social hierarchy of langauage) in Haiti, where Creole is inferior and French the language of the elite, the project morphed to the creation of a body of work that highlight process over form, that valued synthesis and sampling over finite design, and that established a form of laboratory which comprises at its center and core, the Haitian Creole: Kreyòl Lab: Manifeste, Manifesto, Manifestasyon.
