Haunting Sculptures Shaped Like Inuit Dog Sleds Call Attention to Climate Change

For the Inuit in Greenland whose ice is receding, climate change isn't something that will happen in the future; it's happening right now. Without pointing fingers or placing blame, Ap Verheggen initiated cool(E)motion - a project that facilitates the development of beautiful sculptures shaped like dog sleds that draw attention to the Inuit's plight. The pieces are made from Steel37 and biodegradable materials and were placed on a giant iceberg in Greenland with a helicopter. Two of these haunting mementos are already drifting freely - a dynamic representation of how the effects of climate change are now almost beyond our control.
