Tens of Thousands of Nude Bodies Form a Floating Feather

All is not what it seems in this fascinating new work by artist Angelo Musco. Called P1 (Aves), at first glance it looks like a digital photo of a floating feather but upon closer inspection you’ll notice that the feather is made up of tens of thousands of nude bodies. Musco created this image by first photographing dozens of live models in pre-planned poses. Working in Photoshop, he then weaved each individual figure with the other, meticulously adjusting for tone and shadow.

As he states, “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. “

You can see a video of this incredible work, here. P1 is on view in the Mayfair Exhibition at Lyon Wier Gallery in New York from now through May 23.
