The power of the sun in your hand

The Little Sun can deliver light to 1.6 billion people

 Extract from an article in The Basel Journal Home Page  01 12 2013 by Shirley L. Kearney

The Little Sun, a solar-powered lamp created by the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen, is a work of art that works in life. It can efficiently deliver clean, practical and low-cost light to the 1.6 billion people worldwide without access to electricity.


Five hours of charging in the sun produces 10 hours of soft light or four hours of bright light, so you can hold the power of the sun in your hand and carry it along with you for outdoor activities and also use it as an energy saver at home.

The lamps are produced by an innovative and socially dedicated business based in Berlin, Germany, concerned with how to get light to people who need it. The “how” is important. It follows the principle of trade, not aid, and aims to deliver sustainable light to those who are not connected to an electrical grid.

The Little Sun project was officially launched at Tate Modern in London in 2012. The blending of unique design and creative engineering resulted in a product that is popular and efficient, and has a positive global impact. Olafur Eliasson himself has said: “In my understanding, an artwork is fundamentally tied to its surroundings, to the present, to society, to cultural and geographic determinants. It activates this dense texture, thereby examining the world in which we live – and by doing so, it can ultimately change the world.”

In January 2013 Olafur Eliasson introduced the Little Sun to Kofi Annan at the World Economic Forum in Davos, and in July 2013 it was introduced into the Centre Pompidou’s design collection in Paris.

Victor Vertunn as William Sakespeare
Shakespeare's Women
Written by Monia Giovannangeli
Directed by Eric Loren 

If Shakespeare knew then what we know now, imagine the roles he would have written for his women...

Se Shakespeare avesse saputo ciò che noi conosciamo oggi, immaginate che ruoli avrebbe scritto per le sue donne...

Having been conjured up on the banks of the Thames, Shakespeare's spirit is forced by the characters themselves to rethink the way he has portrayed the female characters in his plays. Follow Shakespeare as he discovers, with some difficulties and some surprises along the way, what his women really think and how they view their role in history.

Lo spirito di Shakespeare, magicamente riapparso sulle rive del Tamigi, viene costretto a ripensare il modo in cui ha interpretato i personaggi femminili nelle sue opere ... dai personaggi stessi! Godetevi questo viaggio insieme a Shakespeare, nella sua riscoperta a volte difficile e a volte sorprendente del pensiero delle sue donne e di come loro stesse vedono il loro ruolo nella storia.
