Olafur Eliasson: Little Sun, a project held at Tate developed by the Artist, will engage the public with Little Sun and a series of events and spaces at Tate Modern. The Little Sun is part of an on going worldwide project. According to Eliasson: 'Light is for everyone – it determines what we do and how we do it. This is why Frederik Ottesen and I have developed the solar-powered lamp Little Sun. Little Sun is a small work of art with a large reach. One part of the artwork is the lamp and the activities it enables. The other is the successful distribution of Little Sun in off-grid communities, its journey from production to usage.' By purchasing a Little Sun solar-powered lamp here, you help make it available for a lower price to people who do not have consistent access to electricity
In addition, the Little Sun light is also a fun and functional product - perfect for beaches, BBQs, camping trips and festivals!
The light's durable, versatile sun-like design uses a 6 x 6 cm mono-crystalline solar module. When charged for five hours in the sunlight, Little Sun gives five hours of bright LED illumination.
** Please note that booking is essential if you wish to attend one of the special blackout events at Tate Modern. Please see Tate Modern Whats on section for details**
The Little Sun will be provided with a level of charge but may need further charging using solar-power before an event or if you wish to use the torch for any length of time.
