timberwolf ::  click for larger image This is a set of 16 Crayola color names with threads that match their namesakes represented in braille. when i was a child, my mother transcribed braille as a part time job. i always felt that it was like a secret language and loved looking at the pages of raised dots. i'm interested in how we perceive color and fascinated with the idea of "reading" color without sight i decided to create these. i was also fascinated by a tidbit i heard on NPR that kids are now able to name colors more eclectically since Crayola crayons have been in use. a bit tongue in cheek - if you can see, you can visualize the color, if you can read braille you get to know the name of the color.
