Balasubramaniam drains away certain ´inherent´ qualities of objects and merges them with their ´other´ bringing disorientation in the minds of the viewer, sometimes. In one of his previous works he had projected a soft halo onto the wall and in the middle had drawn a circular mark with a pencil that mimicked a shadow. So illusionary was it that viewers’ simply walked past it thinking all was well. The shadow had been caused not by some absence but by a material presence.
