The weather outside may be going grey, but Tate Modern has just the thing to brighten up your September weekend.

Danish artist Olafur Eliasso has teamed up with Frederick Ottesen, a bright spark in the engineering world, and the pair have created a zany new art project – the Little Sun lamp, which is powered by solar panels and can be used for anything from cooking to reading.

In this bright new exhibition, Eliasso combines the invention with photography to create an unforgettable new art experience – and if you see yourself as a creative type, you can make your own graffiti-style masterpiece and view it online when you get home!

You’ve only got until the 23rd to get down to the Tate but if you miss it, or want to find out more, you can visit the website or check out this video…

/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
