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.

Uummannaq - ice conditions

The satellite picture around the Northern Greenlandic Island: Uummannaq still shows no sea-ice. We are sure that the dogs are howling like crazy. They want action! Ole Jorgen Hammeken, our local team member, always speaks in terms of solutions, instead of problems. We need a lot of solutions, but we are sure that we will succeed. For visitors of this site/blog it will give an extra dimension to this excited project. The start of a fascinating adventure in the Northern Arctic.
