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.

The iceberg is turning!

Have a look at our webcam and compare the right corner with the iceberg behind. It's turning! When will it start to float? We don't know, but come back on http://www.coolemotion.org/ and have a look. Who will send the first mail to announce the start?

The web cam is mounted on the hotel Uummannaq, as the batteries did not arrive in time to place the web cam on the sculpture. just click on the photo on the right side of the panel in the main page to see it's daily progress in the harbour.

GPS track it on
