Indian street artist DAKU recently unveiled an immersive shadow art installation in Panjim, Goa. Titled Theory of Time, the incredible street-long piece features a net of suspended letters that create typographic shadows on the concrete floor, when sunlight shines down on it during the day. The letters spell out phrases related to the passage of time, such as “Time works wonders” and “Time is an illusion.”
A recent time-lapse video posted by DAKU on Instagram reveals how the text moves from right to left as the position of the sun changes throughout the day. This is a visualization of time itself and it clearly illustrates one of the installation’s thought-provoking phrases—“time moves.” Viewers can immerse themselves in DAKU’s art by walking through the constant flow of shadowy letters while contemplating the inevitable passage of time.
