In 2009 Brazilian artist Nele Azevedo carved 1,000 'Melting Men' out of ice and placed them in Berlin's Gendarmenmarkt Square to bring awareness to Global Warming. As part of the Festival of Queens in northern Ireland, she created a similar installation to visually remind people of the melting ice caps in Greenland and Antartica. She has installed the 'Melting Men' or 'Monumento Minimo', in cities across the globe and is becoming known internatinally for her climate change art. (via gblog)
