Ohhhh dear. Now that it's getting closer...
Firstly, warm congratulations to all the brave folk in Cork who were out this morning! Fair play. I hope someone will blog about it and tell us what to expect...

Subject: It's Here. Spencer Tunick - Important Information for Dublin Participants - Saturday 21st June
It's here! Hope you are ready for a great day. Get a good night's sleep. Or stay up all night, no matter what you do, just be there!
Hard Facts:Thank God for that, didn't want to remove all my tattoos...
Location: [Can't tell you]
Arrival Time: 3:00 am [Oh dear God] rain or shine!
You will only be nude for a short period of time during the actual installation. Please wear warm clothing. If it is chilly the artist will work as quickly as possible to make the artworks.
While in position do not wear any clothing. No hats, no sunglasses, no jewelery (watches, necklaces, bracelets). Completely nude. Tattoos and piercing are fine.
If it is raining bring an umbrella or raincoat and a small towel to dry your skin. Do not undress until directed to do so by the artist.Ahhhh, dammit!
There are no cameras allowed. No taking photos or video with mobile phones. Please no handing out of flyers.After all, where would people put them?
There will be tea and coffee available to purchase on site but you may also bring your own water and snacks, provided you bring your rubbish home with you.Not even a cup of coffee :( Ah the price of art!
The art event will be finished by approximately 7.30am.
Bring friends and family to participate as long as they are over 18 year of age - ID maybe requested.So photobloggers, no new pics for you! ;-)
Only participants will be allowed in the vicinity of the art event. Unfortunately, spouses, friends or significant others who are not participating will not be allowed near or on the site. Only come to the art event with people who are participating.
Spencer will be doing a few set-ups. Please refrain from talking and shouting while walking into these positions and while Spencer is documenting the installation. It is very important to pay close attention to the artist and his assistants' instructions during this time. It is vital that participants move according to the instructions given via megaphones.
If you cannot hear the instructions, for any reason, please follow what the crowd in front of you is doing. Please also be patient in between set-ups while Spencer moves his crew and assistants into position.
Please bring a towel to the installation.For covering up, drying down or covering shame presumably!
There will be selected art press and media present to report on the art installation, positioned at a safe distance and in a marked off area. Spencer Tunick will also have his own documentation crew present at the installation documenting the process.I promise that was the email I got. Exiting. I'm not sure if that's a factor or a typo!
Thank you for wanting to be a part of Spencer's art! He couldn't make his work without you, and he is extremely grateful for your participation.
This will be an exiting event and we thoroughly hope you will enjoy the experience!
The organisers of this installation reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone they deem to be intoxicated or exhibiting anti social behaviour.I'm wondering how they'll define intoxicated. Dutch courage etc. I'll need a pint!
It, erm, promises to be interesting anyways! I'll let you know how it goes.
Are you doing it?
