Ice men in Chile - level 2, A12

24-08-2012 18:00

A Brazilian artist created an army of a thousand frozen ice men. She asked people to help her display the ice sculptures on stairs in front of a university in Chile.

The work was planned to be a monument but people could see it in many different ways.

The display was part of an environmental law conference where people discussed climate change. As soon as the figures were in place, Mother Nature began doing her best to destroy the party and reduced the army of ice men to nothing more than a little pool of water in less than an hour.

You can watch the video in the Level 3 section.


Interesting words: display (show), sculpture (object made out of stone or wood), environmental (connected with Earth and nature).
