Some when along 2003 photographer Jason Salavon created a rather interesting piece of art. He stacked all the centerfold images from each decade of playboy and created a super centerfold. While those super centerfolds lack any real nude, or even a clear human image, they are kinda hypnotizing as you can see from Salavon’s work below.
Photographer Pat David set out to recreate those images using ImageMagick a free image handling software. By stretching, rotating and layering the images David not only recreates the process made by Jason Salavon, but tries to add a few tricks of his own. The results are just as hypnotizing. Do you find it interesting, artsy?
Oh, and there is a tutorial too.

P.S. The name David Pat may seem familiar, this is because he is the creative mind behind the awesome accumulative light tutorial.
