Presence of Absence

Set in a gated community on the suburban outskirts of Bangalore, Presence of Absence is a series of nine prints and a video animation that features a black mass/ void that moves very slowly through the built environment. Through the sequence this ambiguous shape begins to develop character, presence and meaning. The work acts as a response to Henri Lefebvre’s assertion that “we are surrounded by emptiness, but it is an emptiness filled with signs”.
