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.
