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.

Ap on his way to Uummannaq

Really great! Tomorrow Ap is leaving to Uummannaq to see the drifting iceberg by himselve. The route of the iceberg is very special. It turned first backwards to it's glacier where it was born, said goodbye and is now drifting back to Uummannaq. It's froozen waterdrops on the side are as tears for starting it's exciting voyage to an unknown world. We received pictures from Dr. Will Richard and a clip from Sara Svarta Sorensen, that are really cool! Of course Ap will send updates of this special trip, as internet connections allow.

During my visit in Uummannaq in April I took some photos of the sculpture. It's surprising to see the route the iceberg took the last days. I'm looking forward to follow what happens the days to come.
