Ascension

Commissioned by Dubai Design Week 2016

Design : Yusuke Murakami + Hideki Yoshimoto

Ascension is an animation screened on the fa├žade of Dubai's iconic tower, Burj Khalifa. Inspired by this soaring skyscraper, Ascension explores the journey from the centre of the earth to the universe. The path starts from lava, then ascends through layers of minerals, deep sea, sand, buildings, mountains and sky, into the universe. The graphical elements in each scene give rhythm to the animation, which corresponds to that of the earth.
