Morgan Tepsic has one dream: to jump around the world naked! Have your name on his body, get prints, and even him photoshopped into a family portrait!
How this came about: Ever since I graduated high school in 2008, I've been traveling throughout Asia...when times got tough, I had to move back to my hometown of Oklahoma City, OK. When I was there, I made the most out of situation by working with what I had...there isn't too much happening in Oklahoma, so I decided to add some life to it by getting naked and jumping. Being free and exploring every way possible.
What I want to do: I want to travel the world and get naked. I want to bridge the gap between art and exhibitionism, show people parts of the world they've never seen before, and fulfill a life-long dream of mine...having my own exhibition.
What the money is for: If my project is funded 100%, the money will be used towards traveling expenses, retractable pants, hostels, printing, mounting and framing my prints that will be shown at the exhibition. No luxury hotels, no first-class...we're talking couch-surfing, sleeping in a hut in Laos, sweaty buses in India and walking around the Great Wall of China.
Countries I want to jump in: South Korea, China, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, India, Egypt, Israel, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Netherlands, and England.
Below are some visual examples of what you can expect if my project gets funded 100%
Images are to be used as references ONLY, my pictures will be way more awesome and amazing.
Regardless if my goal is reached or not, if you donate $10+ I will send you a personalized naked postcard from wherever I am in the world! Please be sure to e-mail your address to: me @ morgantepsic [dot] com !!
