Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg went under the public’s eye when she gave her impassioned speech during the United Nations summit earlier this year. Many were left inspired by the teenager’s speech, while some spouted criticism against her.
Either way, the words, “How dare you?” spewed by the teenager were pointed as daggers towards world leaders for apparently failing her generation.
This week, the phrase slowly melted away. As part of an art installation for 2019 Miami Art Week, a 36-foot “How Dare You” ice sculpture carved by Brazilian artist Rubem Robierb went on display at Shore Club’s pool in Miami.
A spokesperson from the Shore Club South Beach described that the ice blocks lasted for around eight hours before melting into the pool.
Robierb told local station WPLG that the two-ton ice work, titled as Climate Meltdown, represented the “ice from the poles that right now, as we speak, is melting.”
According to the UN’s IPCC, humans have to cut out global emissions by half in the next 10 years to avoid detrimental effects on the planet.
Though the ice sculpture has disintegrated, the other art installations will be displayed at the Shore Club for free till 9 December 2019.
