Melting ice sculptures highlights global warming

Brazilian artist Nele Azevedo highlights global warming with her crowds of seated ice people – a simple, constructive and thought-provoking concept which has been stunningly executed and photographed. I love how erratically and unpredictably the figures melt; it is relentless, unstoppable and indiscriminate.

The dark steps left behind really contrast the remaining figures, too, as the light catches and slowly eats them. At its most basic, it is also just a stunning visual, so the viewer can rationalise it as much or as little as suits.
