Fletch Mass Sydney Nude 'Installation' commissioned by Mardi Gras

Yes, according to Yahoo news, 5,200 people posed naked in an 'installation' at the Sydney Opera House commissioned by the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
As the sun rose, [photographer Spencer Tunick] instructed participants to do a number of poses, from standing up, lying down, and even embracing cheek to cheek, for over an hour.

"I want all couples to embrace and kiss, all friends to kiss and all strangers to do whatever they want," Tunick said as he directed the crowd
And his message?
"Gay men and women lay naked next to their straight neighbours and this delivered a very strong message to the world that Australians embrace a free and equal society," Tunick said.
Well, are we back in 1969? It sure feels like it. Maybe I should wear some flowers in my hair.
Is that really the answer to the problems of the world? Getting your kit off?
