Brazilian artist Angelica Dass created the visually stunning project Humanæ, where she matches skin tone to a PANTONE® color. The ongoing portraiture project takes a sample of 11×11 pixels of the model’s face and then matches it to the exact PANTONE® tone. The background is then dyed to the exact tone. You could say the result is a color “HUE”MAN (ha!)?
The project’s hope is to gather and document all possible skin tones out there. She has already photographed a ton but I’m sure it’s just the tip of the iceberg. It’s fascinating, isn’t it?
