The Burj Shadow film follows the rotation of the world’s longest shadow cast by a man-made struture. Recorded from 700m on the Burj Khalifa, the film encourages us to see the Earth rotate around us – an alternative to seeing the sun move across the sky. Custom-made equipment and philosophical curiosity enable us to see this perspective on celestial motion that is otherwise difficult to observe in our day-to-day lives.
