Noco

  1. 1. Thesis Presentation By Ashley Parkin
  2. 2.  NOCO is a fake fashion line that will be displayed on the Web. It is an exaggerated visual satire of people’s desire to assume another ethnicity’s identity, while discriminating against them at the same time.  The line and the web site hosting it are transforming a negative aspect of being black into something that is fashionable and easy to take off when convenient.
  3. 3.  Can a fake clothing line web site steeped in racial stereotypes stir up online conversations on race?  Will online viewers see the satire and respond to the project’s message immediately?
