Thousands Of People Get Naked And Paint Themselves Blue For Art [NSFW]

On Saturday, thousands of people gathered in the UK city of Hull for an art project that required them to strip down and blue themselves.

Conceived by New York-based photographer Spencer Tunick, the project was designed to celebrate the city’s relationship with the sea. 3,200 people from more than 20 countries showed up for the event and were painted in one of four shades of blue before Tunick photographed them.

The shoot itself took roughly three hours, with the participants being directed by assistants with megaphones that Tunick referred to as “nude wranglers.”

In addition to being a celebration of the city’s rich maritime history, Tunick also said the demonstration was also a comment on climate change. From The Guardian:

Tunick said the crowds of blue people were also a representation of the rising sea levels caused by climate change. “It’s the idea that the bodies and humanity is flooding the streets,” he said. “So there are many ways you can think about it. “I was very surprised to see so many older people take part and so many people who had problems walking – [with] wheelchairs, crutches, leg braces. It was like the end of a war in a way, but they were resilient and we had young and old and I am so thankful to them.

Hopefully the locals were all informed of the event beforehand. It would be jarring to come to a section of closed-off road, wondering why you can’t just drive to the store like usual, only to be confronted with thousands of naked blue people. You’d have to assume it was some horrible “Avatar” related event, and nobody wants that.’
