The 1,517 victims aboard the the Titanic were recently commemorated by Brazilian artist Nele AzevedoHer project features mini ice sculptures that symbolize the transition between life in death.

Azevedo brought her famous Minimum Movement project to Belfast, Northern Ireland - the place the doomed ship departed from on April 14, 1912.

Here's how she describes her project: ''In a few-minutes action, the official canons of the monument are inverted: in the place of the hero, the anonym; in the place of the solidity of the stone, the ephemeral ice; in the place of the monumental scale, the minimum scale of the perishable bodies.''
