Daku is a artist based out of India that has come up with a way to create street art using shadows and typography as seen on this building mural. The building is covered in three dimensional letters that protrude from the building and face upwards so that when the sun shines down on them, they reveal words that are displayed onto the building's facade.

The use of letters and shadows to create sentences is an unconventional way to depict a mural on the side of a building that is similar to the way a sundial operates. This means the words displayed such as "wish," "people," "colour" and "identity" are all visible at a specific moment in time.
