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.

When do the sculptures start their trip?


That's the question. The iceberg is stuck on a line of rocks under water. It needs high tide and wind to push it over. If I have a look at the tidestable, the best possible answer is: wednesday, the 28th of April. ( see tide calendar ) If you have another prediction: please let it know!
