We got this letter this morning:
My name is Morgan Tepsic, I'm 20 years old and my dream is to jump around the world naked.
Here's 2,600 shots in motion showing what I've done so far...it's not very long, and the music is really great.
Thanks and have a good day,
Normally, unsolicited email from South Korea asking for money would go immediate in the trash, but here's the video he linked to. NSFW!
Naked jumping. That's it. That's the art he wants to make. Here's the page to go to if you want to help fund this. Currently, 16 people have pledged $10, three people have pledged $50, four people have pledged $100, and one person has pledged $1,000. His goal is only $10,000. C'mon! If you pledge $500, you get your name on his butt cheek and he will Photoshop himself into a family portrait of yours (and he does great Photoshop work—here's one example). For $1,000, he will draw your portrait and send you a lock of his hair (in addition to your name on his butt and the family portrait). For $1,500 you get your name on his penis. For $5,000 you get your name on his face.
If you read his tumblr blog, the story he tells is that he was in Oklahoma having a shitty time, he went out into the snow trying to find things to take pictures of, no one was around, he took off his clothes, and made photographs of himself jumping around. Then he decided he could be broke and jumping around in Oklahoma or he could be broke and jumping around in South Korea, and made the wise move. He is taking questions from anyone who wants to ask him something and making videos of himself answering them (here and here). Ask him anything you want here.
The stills from the above video can be found on his photography site. This one is my favorite, though there's something to be said for this one. Also this one. And this one. Also this one. And this one. What'd you say? You want to see him full-frontal with a costume horse head one? Sure thing.
A "behind the scenes" video of him running around making these images is after the jump.
Man, best unsolicited email from South Korea asking for money ever.
