This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information titled "Jocelyn Taylor: The Story of Color",  is a review of the artist's video installations, whose New York City sites were Sigerson Morrison, 242 Mott Street, April 2000, and Williamsburg Mini-Mall, 218 Bedford Avenue, May 2000.  The exhibitions were sponsored by the Public Art Fund:

Commissioned through Public Art Fund's In the Public Realm program for emerging artists, African American artist Jocelyn Taylor created a candid and thought-provoking video installation entitled The Story of Color.  Taylor's videos, created to be viewed in two New York City storefront windows, set up a point of contemplation for the interplay of race, sexuality, and humanity within the context of New York's vast and diverse population.

At the Sigerson Morrison shoe boutique on Mott Street, and at the Williamsburg Mini-Mall, passersby encountered five loosely constructed narratives.  Each explored perceptions of the words white, black, light, dark and color and the varied meanings of these terms within our collective psyches.  Using three monitors set up side by side, Taylor's video triptych depicted mythologies commonly associated with colors and hues.

Artist Bio
Known for compelling and beautiful video work, Jocelyn Taylor unfurls rich, striking imagery and poignant metaphors illustrating both obvious and subtle interpretations of age-old, universal issues of identity and the complexity of visual language. Taylor has exhibited widely including the New Museum of Contemporary Art and Franklin Furnace in New York, the Johannesburg Biennial, Museo De Belles Artes in Venezuela, and the Center for Contemporary Art in Seattle.

The Story of Color is a project of the Public Art Fund, commissioned through In the Public Realm, a program supported by the Joyce Mertz-Gilmore Foundation, The Greenwall Foundation, The Heathcote Foundation, The Silverweed Foundation, The New York State Council on the Arts, a State Agency, the City of New York Department of Cultural Affairs, and friends of the Public Art Fund.

The Story of Color is also generously supported by The Fifth Floor Foundation.
