Cool Art


In this art installation, Nele Azevedo created hundreds of figures out of ice. The installation lasted as long as it took for the last one to melt. There are more incredible photos here. I didn't think it fair to swipe them all, since the artist took them herself.

  1. For some reason I find this heart-breakingly beautiful. Perhaps it's the ephemeral nature of it, and of the life it reflects.

  3. now, this is installation art that speaks to me. :) it is natural and lovely- and hundreds of tiny people made out of ice- melt away. very apropos.

  4. I realize that this might be inappropriate, but this makes me really thirsty. I want to pick one up and pop it into my mouth.

  5. That is wondeful. It's so strange and powerful to encounter something so ephemeral. All that effort and then...nothing. Haunting.

    Thank you for your comments at my blog. The answer is, 'Yes, please and thank you.'

  6. Yes, this art is really cool. And to me, really beautiful. The impermanence is appealing, like a sand castle. In the photograph, I love the little boy crouching down to look at them.

  8. That is awesome. Reminds me a little of some of Andy Goldsworthy's stuff.

  9. Ed: I didn't recognize the name Goldsworthy but when I did a search, I recalled some of the images. Amazing. Thank you for the tip.

  11. This brought out all sorts of feelings as I looked. I will confess, with DCup, that one of the feelings was popsicle oriented. But most of it was about the incredible way this captures the passing nature of life and humanity. Wow.

  12. That piece really caught my eye. The artist's sense of mischief really got my attention.
