It may not seem like it but the image of the floating feather you see above is actually comprised of millions of naked human bodies. Just look closer and you might be able to see the naked bodies laid out and holding on to each other to form every string.
The haunting image was created by artist Angelo Musco. He painstakingly shot photos of countless live models in strategic poses and then stitched them up together in Photoshop.
“In the AVES Series the images are minimal and restrained on the surface but complex, poetic and compelling just below the surface. The images are presented lightly floating on the air or gently falling downward, a frozen dance, a silent musical bridge, an ongoing paradox of lightness,” he described the project.
Musco’s pieces will be shown at The MAYFAIR Exhibition at Lyons Wier Gallery in New York until May 23rd 2015, so do pay a visit to check these out if you happen to be in the area.
