Grace of the Sun is a large scale art piece by Robert Montgomery made using the Little Sun solar lamps designed by Olafur Eliasson and Frederik Ottesen, and realised in Glasgow through collaboration with the local art community.
Measuring 11 metres by 5 metres the giant solar powered light poem will illuminate every day at sunset as a poetic beacon of hope for Glasgow.
The solar lamps Little Sun produces provide power to many of the 600 million people living without electricity in the Southern Hemisphere. After their brief installation in Glasgow the lights will be donated on to Little Sun’s work on the ground in Sub-Saharan Africa. Little Sun has already brought solar light and power to over 3 million people on the African continent.
