Inspired and created in conjunction with artist Olafur Eliasson’s Little Sun Project, this course teaches students to use unconventional materials to create sustainable solutions and environmentally-focused art and design. Students will use materials such as light, recycled and found objects. There will be a special overnight at Usdan to experience what it’s like to live with limited light and create art in the dark. In 2017, students worked as a team to make a wind powered air conditioner and a bike powered lamp! This class is open to thinkers from all disciplines.

“I enjoyed the tasks that we had to complete using mostly things we found on our own.” –Luke
