A 'gumball machine' of coloured, naked bodies in Melbourne's big nude shoot

CLIENT: CHAPEL STREET PRECINCT
OUTLET: THE AGE ONLINE

 Five-hundred people will strip naked in the dead of Melbourne's winter and cover themselves in coloured paint for the first of a series of photo shoots by world famous artist Spencer Tunick on Sunday.  The New York-based photographer is promising an “exciting, exhilarating, quick, messy, coloured lather-up work of art” that is reminiscent of a “gumball machine”.  “Everyone will be painted different colours and it will reflect the graffiti covered area” of the secret location chosen for the event in Chapel Street Precinct, he said, which has commissioned the work.
