Focussed on a stellar and solar tomorrow, the collaboration is centered around Olafur’s concept of the “tripod of the art institution.” Touching on sustainable development goals, the graphics found on the long sleeve T-shirt utilize a mixture of screen print, puff print, matte and holographic vinyl processes. Additional design elements on the piece include Abc.’s “authenticity label,” pull-tab detailing and a numbered Abc. “information label.”
80 of the total 108 shirts will be made available to the public exclusively at the Marciano Art Foundation in Los Angeles. Each T-shirt costs $125 USD each and all proceeds from the sales will be donated to the Little Sun Foundation to fund its projects, which include programmes on solar energy that broaden the reach of climate education.
For more contemporary fashion, Bajowoo of 99%IS- discusses the importance of customization and destruction for creation.
ADVISORY: 100% percent of the proceeds from this shirt will be donated to @littlesunenergy. The Little Sun Foundation is a not-for-profit organization founded by artist @studioolafureliasson to bring light to the most vulnerable communities – especially urgent given the record-high number of displaced persons around the world. Little Sun raises funds to bring solar light and phone charging to refugee camps and to students. They also offer programmes on solar energy that broaden the reach of climate education. The design for the shirt is built off of Olafur’s concept of the tripod of the art institution, artists (Abc. and Olafur), and the audience joining forces for a stellar and solar tomorrow. The collaborative shirt touches on the sustainable development goals most relevant to the little suns efforts. When read from top to bottom the layout functions similarly to a flow chart leading back to the goal of working together for a stellar tomorrow. The Abc. + Olafur Eliasson collaborative t-shirt for the Little Sun Foundation is available exclusively at the Marciano Art Foundation in Los Angeles. The release overlaps with the final weekend of Olafur’s installation “Reality Projector.” Visitation for the Marciano Art Foundation is free but requires a timed reservation made online. As tickets are sold out through September, you may email the foundation below to order a t-shirt which will grant you access for pickup. For those not located in Los Angeles, you may also place an order via email. The email is: email@example.com. The shirt features screen print, puff print, matte and holographic vinyl, the Abc. “Authenticity Label,” signature pull-tab and numbered Abc. “Information Label.” 80 of the total 108 shirts will be made available to the public. We believe there are many ways to change the world. This is one of them. Thank you for your contribution to the Little Sun foundation.
