There's much debate on the causes of climate change. Scientists, politicians and opinion leaders all take the stage to present their vision or ideas. However, cool(E)motion is not focused on the possible causes of climate change. We merely note that the climate is changing, whatever the cause. Let's now focus on what this means for the Arctic. And more specifically, what will happen to traditional culture, when hunters can't trust the ice, when seals disappear and wheater condition deteriorate?

Cool(e)motion urges those in power to focus on the cultural effects of climate changes. We seek attention for this message by creating giant sculptures on ice bergs that will float when spring comes. This way, the sculptural 'hunters' can search for new hunting grounds for people in the Arctic.

'together reinventing our legacy' CARTOON depicts the 192 countries participating in COP15 (UN Conference on Climate Change, Copenhagen, Dec 2009) creating positive solutions.

In this piece, the flag poles at the UN buildings have no flags. The flags have come together - collectively reinvented as solar panels.
Solar power in fact offers an enormous opportunity for achieving greater independence and security while reducing the harmful effects of climate change.
