This is the introductory video to TEDxDubai.

The main titles showcase the staggering growth of Dubai over the past 10 years through time-lapse satellite imagery, and act as a prologue to the event that seeks to celebrate the “small” in a location like Dubai, mostly known for the excess and extravagances.

One of my clients is based in Dubai and I’m privileged to visit this fascinating place twice a year.

Dubai is man-made. Artificial.

A monument to human achievement.

A poetic experience.
