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.

Sculptures arrived in Qaarsut

We are very happy to announce that our sculptures arrived in Qaarsut, opposite the Uummannaq Bay. Because it was last month in The Hague colder than in Uummannaq, Greenland, the sea ice was retreated dramatically. A boat will transport them to Uummannaq.
This picture was taken at the studio of Meesterbouw , where we practised in building up the sculptures.
