Ascension is an art installation screened on the LED façade of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the highest building in the world.


"Ascension" is a visually stunning art installation that illuminates the iconic Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the tallest building on the planet. This immersive experience takes viewers on a rhythmic journey from the depths of the earth to the vastness of the universe, all displayed on the towering LED façade of the Burj Khalifa.

Starting with a fiery eruption of lava, the story unfolds layer by layer as it ascends the building, showcasing the stunning beauty of minerals, the mystery of the deep sea, the desert's sand dunes, bustling cities, soaring mountains, and the majesty of the sky.

Each scene is brought to life with vivid colors and graphical elements that give the animation a rhythm and tempo that mimics the pulse of the earth. The end result is a truly awe-inspiring spectacle that transforms the Burj Khalifa into a beacon of light, illuminating both the building and the night sky.
