Remember the “color carne” that we used to color the skin of every person in paper? Even ourselves?. Did it reflect our Latin skin?
In a society where we are still being divided by the importance it has given to color, where it only wants to acknowledge people with certain physical appearance and where there’s an underrepresentation of multidimensional Latin people; as a first step, it’s very important to accept ourselves, celebrate our heritage and take pride in our skin color.
Moreni is an interactive digital installation that helps you distinguish your skin color in RGB and HSB value, so that you’ll be able to use your true color in any way you want.
