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.

World's most extraordinary water

We tapped two bottles of water of our own melting iceberg. I took them back home and they will be decanted into special designed bottles, as everlasting icons for this artproject. One of the bottles will be sold to finance my new artproject. (Photos by my good friend Dr. Wilfred E. Richard)

On the map it seems like the sculpture now is standing among the houses in the settlement of Saattut! Is that true?
