Men melt

2 11 2009

An Brazilian artist has tried to bring attention to global warming by creating 1,000 miniature ice sculptures of men. Nele Azevedo positioned the ice men on the steps of Berlin’s Concert Hall and allowed them to melt in the sun.

Is it only men that melt? What is the location’s resonance; i.e why not Brazil (given artist is Brazilian) – is there a political comment on where blame for global warming sits? Must have taken ages to make so rather sad they just melted but it is art with a message and I like art with a message. Thanks for bringing an artist I knew nothing of to my attention.
