Spencer Tunick and Workout Anywhere

This is the work of Spencer Tunick ( He coordinates the gathering of mass displays of public nudity. Modernity is left to respond to his attempt at a "pre-industrial, pre-everything" existence. What interests me is the body is focal in the work. These bodies are captured at a standstill. What if I captured bodies in motion? Better yet, what if I planted the seed in an individual to take back his environment; what if he/she realized they didn't have to go to a gym or the confines of their home to workout? What if I started a free athletic club on the streets of Philadelphia?

What if everyone was clothed, but doing push-ups? What if it wasn't a one time thing? What if we met once a week and took back our environment with sweat on the brow?
