Discover the Rainbow of Humanity through Humanae, a project by artist Angelica Dass. It is brilliant, in my opinion!
Many people think that “we” are different. We may be, but not completely. First of all, we ALL “came” from Africa – yes, ALL means ALL. We are ALL the same. We ALL have the same rights. The beauty of human skin is amazing. EVERY human skin, every color. The artist photographed thousands of people around the world, to show that humanity is far more diverse than just plain black or white, recording as many skin tones as possible.
The Daily Mail says that the artist “extracts an 11-by-11 pixel from the volunteer’s face, matches it with a corresponding Pantone color and uses it as the background of the photo”. And it seems that each of us has a unique color – very very seldom we will find someone with the exact tone. Isn’t it amazing? And then, why there’s still racism?
On a personal note about colors, I used to know a person who was such a racist! This kind of “friendship” doesn’t suit me. I had a “sunburn accident” once and even though I have fair skin (not that I care about it), she told me “Impossible. You’re not that white. I’m the one who has white skin”, always pointing it out to many people (I saw it happening many times, like a trophy) – I really can’t understand that attitude, I was shocked. Well, who cares about being ANY color? Not me. I once read that wearing darker makeup is good to look friendlier, and because of anaemia (I repeat, not serious) people always told me “you look like a sick ghost” – I never got to know healthy ghosts, anyway So two shades darker makeup helps a lot to look healthier So what difference does it make if someone is orange, purple, fuchsia or grey??? What does it matter? I was bullied for months because of the “levels of whiteness”, no joke, horrible. I won’t compromise on that, like “that person is a racist, but so sweet!” No. A racist is never sweet. I totally dislike racists.
The video below is worth watching! It’s short And here is another video with the artist, saying so meaningful things, also super worth, in my humble opinion.
On the weekends, after having a busy, exhausting week – like everybody else – I travel to discover new cities and art-architecture exhibitions. This one was really so beautiful!
Wishing you a beautiful week with many smiles! Thanks for the sweet comments!
