A Pound of Flesh

An installation made from raw latex, latex paint, chain and large hooks. In 2004 I surveyed friends, strangers, and psychology survey students about their own skin color. Asking each person to describe their skin color without referencing terms used to describe race or ethnicity. Terms were submitted were imaginative, often based on food, crayons, car colors, and nature. I chose terms that I felt evoked a range of hue and tone and recreated those descriptions without any additional information.
