In 2012, artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen started the Little Sun Project, a solar lamp and charger, to bring sustainable energy and the power of the sun to everyone. With the Little Sun as its foundation, this course studies environmental issues through art by using unconventional materials and experiences. Activities include creating solar lamps, nature walks, sketchbook practice, and a special overnight at Usdan to experience what it's like to live with limited light. This class is open to thinkers from all disciplines!
