May 02, 2013: Swiss artist Milo Moire has attempted to 'shake up the ordinary' by filming a project called The Script System which involved a model commuting to work completely naked in Dusseldorf, Germany.

A stark naked model puts her flawless figure on display while pretending to blend in with commuters in Germany — and the commuters respond by ignoring her.

The stunt was orchestrated by Swiss artist Milo Moire, who had the young woman take a journey on public transport during morning peak hour in Dusseldorf.

The artist posted the video on her website last week as part of a project called The Script System.

A camera follows the model as she catches a bus and then a train, wearing nothing but glasses, shoes and a handbag.

English words are painted on her body describing the clothes that she might otherwise be wearing on such a trip, like "bra" and "shirt" and "slip".

The stunt was intended as a way of "shaking up the ordinary," Moire said on her website.

Moire had hoped that the model walking around the train without clothes — with not a single fat roll or stretch mark to speak of — would somehow jolt commuters out of their daily routine.

But throughout the edited four-minute video the artist posted online, it's evident that commuters offer little more than one or two furtive glances.

"What will happen? Amazingly ... NOT MUCH!" the artist said.
