Flying Formation is a breathtaking collection of photo collages that depict birds flying in spectacular formations. The collage was put together by Seattle artist Shaun Kardinal, who pieced it together using images obtained through Google searches and social media feeds. The images were presented digitally and displayed on the artist's Instagram page rather than being sold.

Kardinal put together the Flying Formation collages in a bar using his Macbook. Instagram filters and photo editing software was used to polish the pieces. The collage images were then shared on his Instagram online over the course of two hours. To promote the series, Kardinal created a simple Facebook event asking people to check it out but without posting any information or preview images of the series.

This modus operandi helped the artist feel more connected to his viewers and social media followers.
