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 are crossing Uummannaq

Today we went with a boat to film the departure of the sculptures towards the Baffin Bay. Because the camera shakes in the boat, we decided to place the camera on other icebergs, that also provided us fot ater of thousands of years old. Great weather, great pictures, what can I say more? Keep you updated,
cheers, Ap

Hi all friends of Uummannaq,
It's great to see the sculpture returning to Uummannaq after a trip to near Ikerasak, and it's great to see Ole Jorut with a bottle of water - Tuborg I presume - between icebergs of natural very ole water!!
