If you link nudity to large group of people, you find Spencer Tunick. From his website: “Tunick has traveled the globe to create these still and video images of multiple nude figures in public settings.” Nudity is central to Spencer Tunick.
Becoming a model in one of Tunick’s installation requires that you sign up to participate. Unfortunately, although I’ve signed up, I still wait to be called. Therefore I cannot describe what the experience is. However, from all the pictures, it appears that it’s an opportunity to be naked with many others. Like being an art model, I presume it requires a lot of waiting and standing still. However, it’s an opportunity to meet other people interested in art and spending time with them in the nude.
I would really love to hear from anybody who has featured in such an installation. Was it a cool experience? What was the biggest challenge, if any? How does it feel to be with so many nude people at the same time? Did you meet nice people who became friends? Were all the participants nudists or was it their first time?
If you have been in such a picture, thank you for sharing your experiences and comments below.
Get Naked, Stay Naked, Live Naked and Share the Naked Love!
