Coded #000000 [Black]
Coded #000000 [Black] is a java programmed image processor built in Processing. The code analyses video pixels retrieving the W3C's established seventeen colors of hexadecimal browns, magnifying the pixels by appending them within the frame of the video for closer comparison. The program is in its third working iteration currently analyzing a 26-minute video of prerecorded black and brown skin tones. This project is representative of a research series of interventionist works that aim to foster new conversations on the future of digital technology design and computation. Will the digital media future have diversity coded into its systems? Can we debug existing digital systems and platforms of their inherent and continuum of racial bias?
