‘humanae’ — Pantone skin color spectrum chart by Angelica Dass

Spanish artist Angelica Dass presents a Pantone skin color spectrum chart entitled humanae, which applies the alphanumerical classification of the Pantone coloring system to human skin tone.

For those who are unsure of what I’m talking about, Pantone is a standardized color matching system that utilizes a numbering system for identifying colors. This system is essential for anyone who works with print, e.g: graphic designers, print shops, etc.

The chart features portraits of people who are paired with an exact Pantone shade which has been extracted from a 11×11 pixel-sample of the person’s face. The ultimate goal is to record and catalog, through a scientific measurement, all possible complexions.
