I never answered the questions that people had about the Spencer Tunick shoot, and I promised that I would. So here we go.

What did you do after the photo shoot?

We could have stayed at the station and talked with Mr. Tunick, but we were very tired and hungry. So we took a taxi to a 24-hour diner and had a big breakfast. Bee found a very fancy purse in the taxi, which apparently belonged (the purse, not the taxi) to a very beautiful girl with a Turkish drivers license. There was a fight at the diner and the cops came, but for some reason we didn´t give them the purse. After breakfast, we went home.

How do 450 people get home at 3am!

It was more like 4:30 a.m. The subways and buses run all night in New York, and there is not a lot of competition for cabs at that hour. 450 people can disperse pretty quickly. Once we´d walked about two blocks, we didn´t see anybody else from the shoot. Or anybody at all for that matter, except for a very belligerent homeless man and some guys unloading newspapers in front of a bodega.

Apart from your friends that you went with, did you meet anyone else you knew?

One friend of Bee´s. I don´t remember her name, but she is very tall and beautiful with blond dreadlocks and she rides a scooter.

What reactions have you had from people that you told afterwards?

People who had heard of Spencer Tunick thought it was an excellent thing to have done. Other people thought it was very funny and cool. One of my pals at work was very put off by it, but he handled himself well. People who hadn´t heard about the shoot thought I was probably just making shit up. It is pretty hard to believe, after all.
