Audition to be nude at Burning Man!

Postby VultureChow » Tue May 14, 2013 12:27 pm

Spencer Tunick, known for taking photos of thousands of nudes at once, needs a limited amount of nudes at Burning Man.

Found it while perusing the honorarium page.

Desert Spirits
by Spencer Tunick
Suffern, NY

We would like to invite you to POSE NUDE in a group photographic installation by artist Spencer Tunick.
Spencer will choose men, women and any gender identity to be part of this unique installation.

In order to be chosen we ask that you please send in a low resolution photograph of yourself.
Participants will be selected based on photographs submitted to the email: projects here: projects (at) spencertunick.com
Please send the image sooner rather than later.

Most installations by Spencer do not have limits to the number of people participating, nor do they require the submission of a photograph. However, for this art work for Burning Man, there is a cap on the number of people participating due to the specific concept of the work.
We are asking for a photograph because we want to have a wide range of body types and skin tonalities represented in the final work. Although everyone is unique, If you are not chosen, it is simply because we may have reached the amount of people with similar specific characteristics. We apologize in advance if you are not chosen for this particular idea but please do not let it deter you from posing in future works by Spencer where there are no number limits.

Chosen participants will be contacted by email prior to August 26th with: the day, time, location and further instructions. Please only sign up if you are committed to participating and able to wake up before sunrise (or stay up all night). The work will take place before sunrise in order to utilize the pre-dawn light. You will be in position when the sun rises.


Range of body types.... Might be nice to see burning man photography that isn't all 20 year old chicks. Though the before dawn cat herding will be tough.

I actually really like his work. I hate my body, but I'm sorely tempted to make a go at this.

I just love the idea that the man who did this Image

would come to the one place where roughly 30% of the people you see are already in some stage of nudity and then carefully select a limited number of preapproved nudes.

I'm hoping someone has told them to overbook their models since a certain percentage will never make it to the shoot.

A Spencer Tunick shoot ruined by too many naked people? I love it.

It's like Trouble with Tribbles but with a lot less hair.

tunick posted an open call for a shoot in miami a couple of years back. he did ask for photos to "audition" folks. i sent mine. i didn't get picked. i didn't even get an acknowledgement.



i always wondered where those photos actually ended up.

ok I'd totally be down, but i'm not quite at my ideal playa weight yet. in fact I'll be pushing it to be in shirtless shape by august. I'll have to wait to send in my low resolution photo, or maybe I should just shop around for one online instead? That sounds better, I'll send in my goal picture :D

I'm number 5 . . .

Except for a little solo prancing in deep playa.

Who are all these naked people at the Burn?

I think it's actually maybe only 10 or 12 different people, but they're CONSTANTLY on the move. :)

Last year I got up before 5 AM several times in order to work the morning Perimeter shift, and that was no problem. So I could do this!

One of you 5 should organize a never-nude bike ride through BRC. It might just catch on and become an event in the default world.

I was "naked guy" for a couple years. It was good to purge the body-image demons. But now it's kind of inconvenient ... clothing makes great sunblock. But at least I can bathe in front of my campmates without caring.

If you don't carry a towel, where would you sit? There's a percentage of people who freak out about bare asses on seats, and there is always enough people around for at least one one of them to be present ...

I went maybe the first 2.5 days without seeing one fully nude. Lots of boobs though. I got my fill of them at the pub crawl though. And cock rings. Lots of those at the event. How guys bike like that, I'll never understand.

Y'all are just afraid of shrinkage at that time of morning.

Maybe they have twice as many as necessary and one half the nudes are fluffers. They just lay on top of you to keep warm. Like a writhing naked human electric blanket.
