Artist Angelo Musco created what, at first glance, seems to be a digital feather. But upon closer inspection (and I mean if you go really up close), you see that this is not a feather at all.
Musco composited tens of thousands of nude photos to create this feather and the details of the finished feather (as well as the individual bodies) is staggering.

Modern Met has shared the artist statement for the series:
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.
Musco is known for his nude composites and you can see some of his works online on his web page.
Aves will be on display at the Lyons Wier Gallery in New York until May 23rd 2015, if you want to go up close hand have a look.
