An Art Project For Human Kind
Another example of how art bridges all boundaries. We are each unique, but connected. This reminds you that you have a specific individual expression you are here to shine and to honor and recognize the same in all others. Thanks Segmation for sharing this!
Art mimics its creator.
The art project Humanae has a strong identity and global reach, just like its creator. The woman behind the art has a colorful lineage and resilient sense of self.
Angelica Dass is a photographer who set out on a mission to expose the myriad of identities, cultures and skin tones that exist throughout the world. The Humanae projectinvolves her taking a portrait of an individual and extracting an “11 by 11 pixel sample” of the person’s face. She matches the exact shade to Pantone’s elaborate color system. Then, she edits the picture so that this shade becomes the portrait’s backdrop.
When Dass aligns the pictures, she shines a light on what people often forget: no two people are exactly alike. With over 2,000 photographs, Humanae is revealing that two people might share a cultural heritage but are different in many other ways.
Nobody knows this…
