    OLAFUR'S 'CHARGED BY LIGHT' DRAWINGS

    + EARLY-BIRD CHARGE

    "I feel so energised by the resonance that the Kickstarter campaign has created so far, by all of you who want to share light and energy with the world as much as I do. The Solar Sketches I offered are now sold out, so I would like to offer a new group of original 'Charged by light’ drawings inspired by the sun – inspired by this global solar movement we are creating together." - Olafur.

    Kickstarter supporters are offered a very rare chance, exclusive to Kickstarter, to own an original 'Charged by light' drawing by Olafur Eliasson (hand drawing, ink on A2 paper). A truly special chance to own a work by one of the world's most respected contemporary artists.

    + You will also receive an early-bird charger (regular price €120)

    + And of course we’ll thank you warmly for your hugest help in making Little Sun Charge a reality!

    SOLAR AMBASSADOR

    Why €7000, you may ask? Because this is the highest sum we can ask for on Kickstarter...we know it's a long shot but we wholeheartedly believe in sharing the sun and we (and our planet) hope you do too.

    We will open our arms to those who would like to be involved in something bigger with us: become a solar ambassador and travel to Ethiopia, Zimbabwe or Ghana, for example, and help us spread the solar glow with our partners in off-grid communities.

    We would love to hear your ideas on how you would like to share the sun with us.

    And if you're in Berlin, come visit us at Olafur's studio for lunch so we can chat face to face.

    And most of all: thank you.
