The Anthropometric Study of a Haitian Negro Woman reflects on the legacy of anthropometry, which was used in the past to dehumanized bodies of color. Black­ness, in particular, has been systematically constructed and backed with science and biology. When asked to create a anthropometric measu­rement out of my own proportion, I wanted to highlight that history. I created a tool that measures the part of my body that are overfetishized (mouth, nose, butt, breast, skin). The tool was later translated into an installation piece.
