Naked People on Ice

Naked on IceNot sure what to do about Global Climate Change? Get naked!

It may not help the weather, but it’s fun anyway. In this case, it also helped to raise awareness of the issue.

Via Lycos and Greenpeace:

The nude volunteers posed for us and renowned naked “installation” artist Spencer Tunick on the Aletsch Glacier.

Without clothes, the human body is vulnerable, exposed, its life or death at the whim of the elements. Global warming is stripping away our glaciers and leaving our entire planet vulnerable to extreme weather, floods, sea-level rise, global decreases in carrying capacity and agricultural production, fresh water shortages, disease and mass human dislocations.

At the Greenpeace link there are a few videos of the event, a couple photos, and even two wallpapers you can download, if you’re feeling frisky. One of them is thumbnailed above.

According to Lycos, the temperature during the shoot was around 50 degrees Fahrenheit, which though not freezing, surely caused significant shrinkage.  Please bear that in mind while zooming the image, and give the guys a break.

From whence came the art:

That photograph is a thumbnail of a wallpaper you can download at Greenpeace, by Spencer Tunick.

    Love this post, and I am not referring to the naked bodies, although they are a bonus. I have been a member of Friends of the Earth since long before the term “Green” was coined. Thanks again Janie. People need to be made aware of this stuff.

    Oh dreck, I read the headline and thought I could do some research. I’m playing a hitman in my next show and saw “Naked people on ice” and well….

    Let’s just say that I was surprised to find they weren’t whacked.

    In all seriousness, very cool event. Yes, yes, I know.

    You’re a bit rusty.

    Looks like an event where everyone can just chill, y’know.

    An event where everyone can stay fresh…
    An event for cool cats only…
    A memorable event that will be frozen in time…
    A titanic event, if you will…

    Okay, I think it’s out of my system now.
