Indian Artist Uses Sunlight To Project Phrases Exploring Theories of Time Onto The Street

Published 11 months ago

Daku is an Indian graffiti artist from Delhi who is known for his typographic street art installations, criticizing consumerism and various social issues. For his latest project, he cooperated with an Indian non-profit organization St+art India and created a mesmerizing installation called ‘Theory Of Time’ in Panjim, Goa.

This temporary art installation utilizes sunlight to cast shadows of letters across on the street, displaying a message about the passing of time. The words “Time works wonders. Time moves. Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind. Time fades. Time is an illusion” are cast when the sun is in zenith and St+art India describe the piece as a “multifaceted gameful interpretation of time itself, that gives no answers but posits new questions.”

Check out Daku’s new art piece in the gallery below!

“Time works wonders. Time moves.”

“Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind.”

“Time fades. Time is an illusion,” says Daku’s message

The art installation aims to highlight the temporality of time

Daku does not aim to answer questions – he aims to raise new ones

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
