This is the latest happening from Spencer Tunick, which is always fun news. He is a photographer who specializes in placing regular people, in the nude, in interesting settings. Sometimes large groups of people in public places. This, yesterday, is 450 nude women in New York's Grand Central Station. What does it mean? Hey, it is art, it doesn't have to mean anything. But I think he's often trying to show the vulnerability of the human body in relation to man-made technical objects. Or to show interesting patterns that can be painted with bodies. And to poke at our norms. These are always very ordinary people, and there's nothing suggestive about it, but they're naked, and they're always in settings and in patterns that you wouldn't expect to find naked people in.

His photography is amazing; so striking and yet so simple. It reminds you of yourself and others on a very basic level. HIs participants step outside the mold and yet actually they embrace the basic one.
