Azevedo holds a Masters degree in Visual Arts. She has made installations, sculptures and urban interventions in many countries.
She also made a similar installation called “Melting men” and was meant to bring awareness for the global warming and the possible rise of sea levels.
She carved 1000 figures out of ice and placed them on the steps of the concert hall in Berlin. With temperatures of 23 degrees Celsius the ice sculptures melted within half an hour!
