Pantone Skin Tones: humanæ

An ongoing project by artist Angelica Dass.

Humanae inventory is chromatic, a project that reflects on the colors beyond the borders of our codes by referencing the PANTONE ® color system.

The project conducts a series of portraits whose background is dyed the exact shade extracted from a sample of 11x11 pixels from the very face of the people portrayed. The ultimate aim is to record and catalog, through a scientific measurement, all possible human skin tones.

Pretty cool stuff. Definitely worth seeing the whole collection. In a similar vein to the work of Pierre David.
