The world's tallest tower, Burj Khalifa, boasts a façade covered in LEDs spanning from bottom to top, capable of displaying moving images. Tangent was commissioned to create an animation for what is essentially the world's largest display during Dubai Design Week 2016. The concept involved a seven-minute animation portraying a journey starting from the Earth's core, ascending through the layers of the planet's internal structure, before venturing into deep space. The work was aptly named 'Ascension.'
