Tate Modern to be plunged into darkness
Little Sun by Olafur Elaissson and engineer Frederik Ottesen
Developed over the last two years, Little Sun is a work of art that brings solar-powered light to off-grid areas of the world. Olafur Eliasson: Little Sun will feature a display about solar power which will include a special set-up for people to create light graffiti using the Little Sun and the opportunity to buy a lamp for £16.50. In a series of special late night events, Tate Modern will dim the lights to create an atmospheric event to experience the Surrealism galleries by the light of Little Sun. Olafur Eliasson: Little Sun is at Tate Modern.
An accompanying exhibition will focus on solar power and the importance of light.

China Blue is an award winning international artist whose current work focuses on the brain. Brainwaves of individuals, sensed through her customized EEG software, control the light and sound of an interactive sculpture and also dynamically create personal mind produced drawings. Over the past two decades she has created sound art works that focus on researching and developing data sonification. This has lead to discovering the hidden acoustics imbedded in the iron of the Eiffel Tower, submerged in Venice’s water or encased in NASA’s Vertical Gun chamber. She is also the Founder and Executive Director of The Engine Institute.
