An artist brought hundreds of people together at the Dead Sea for his latest art installation. The craziest part? They were all naked.
U.S. artist Spencer Tunick was behind the gathering. Tunick's photos are used to highlight the "ecological disaster" happening at the Dead Sea, something near and dear to him. The sea lies at the lowest point on Earth and is currently receding by a meter every year. Tunick raised awareness for the same issue 10 years ago by photographing nude people floating in the sea. This time he had hundreds of naked people covered in white paint come together in the desert. This now marks his third time going to the Dead Sea.
"Mankind can affect a massive sea. And I think that showing this juxtaposition of the body – very fragile – against the Dead Sea, which is equally fragile, will bring a new energy to the work and people's conversations," Tunick told CNN.
