In Three Shadows, the dancing figures in white have been isolated and animated to render them into ghostly spinning specters. This is in keeping with the fragments we have found in letters from the battlefields by Indian soldiers and non-combatants referring to specters. We have also found a sound recording of an Indian prisoner of war in a camp in Germany speaking about ghosts emanating from the battlefields. Our treatment of the figures in white is reflective of this.

Three shadows (of care, rage, and indifference) hover between occurrence and oblivion, not yet at ease.
