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 moment everybody waited for has arrived: The sculptures are drifting!. Please have a look at: ( maybe you first have to install the plug-in )
Ole Jorgen Hammeken, together with his wife Ann Andreasen, our both bestest friends, immediately took a boat and sent us the pictures. THANKS! We are more than excited where the voyage will go.
As you can see, the start was going deeper into the bay, but now they are on their way back to Uummannaq, hopefully soon in Baffin Bay. Shortly new posts will arrive. We keep you in touch.
