The Big Melt









As the winter snow has begun to melt away after the seasonsal period I was reminded of Nele Azevedo's unusal type of performance art for WWF, to raise awareness of global warming.

Back in September 1000 of these little creatures were placed on the steps of one of Berlins most famous building, but lasted only 30minutes in the glaring sun. I cant help but feel pity for them as they distort and slowly drip away, but appreciate the wonderful symbolism associated with the figures and the context they are in.

  1. There are so many and they are so intricate. It gets the message across also. Beauty and function. Match made in heaven.
