At last! Someone debunking that the color “Flesh” is more than taupe. Brazilian-born artist Angelica Dass is on a mission to record and catalog all possible human skin tones in the world by matching it with the PANTONE coloring system. In her ongoing project called ‘Humanae’, Dass takes a series of portraits with the background color dyed to the ‘exact shade’ or skin tone of her subjects. She chooses the background color by extracting a sample of 11x11 pixels from the face of the person portrayed. The background color and skin tone is finally matched with PANTONE’s alphanumerical color code and added to her ongoing series.
