World-renowned artist Spencer Tunick invited hundreds of participants to take part in the nude in a human installation to raise awareness for the disappearing Dead Sea. Over 1,200 people from all walks of life (from Israel & abroad) arrived just before dawn on Saturday September 17th 2011 to participate. The stunning image was created in only a few hours, after all attendees stripped off and floated in unison in the Dead Sea. Several other images were taken on the shores of the Dead Sea, and later that day at the Ein Gedi Springs & the Ein Bokek Waterfalls.
The Dead Sea Installation was initiated by Ari Fruchter & Shlomit Yarkoni.
Spencer Tunick is represented in Israel exclusively by Keren Bar Gil.
