Zhang Bojun has created a new fashion statement: people plaid. It is literally the classic plaid pattern made up of thousands of Photoshopped individuals. Although the people plaid art looks like it involved a mass flash mob of sorts, it really is the efforts of daily photographing and digital manipulations.

Titled 'We,' the people plaid series " reflects both the uniformity of large groups and each person's individuality among them. Zhang writes that 'every person is a mirror in which I can see myself.' He created this series in part to highlight the 'survival strategies' of the many migrant workers who come to China's cities looking for work, and how these fit into a larger picture of social hierarchy," writes Fast Co Design.
