Art Review

retire into shell and to escape from reality to one's own worlds. Visual art is intended for the viewer, because it is a form of communication. That's why I listen to the response, but I'm interested not so much in logical valuation, I'm interested more in emotions, how my objects correct and retune viewer's inner vibrations. I'd like to know if the viewer gets a useful experience, if it provides an inducement to develop themselves, if it makes them more open and so on. Thanks a lot for your time and for sharing your thoughts, Sergey. Finally, would you like to tell us readers something about your future projects? How do you see your work evolving?

My creative work plans are deeply connected to common life tasks. As for me, many things in people's lives seem unacceptable in the most essential aspects. It is difficult to notice it from the outside, because I do not waste my power for the struggle. Nothing must be rejected and nothing must be struggled with, before you find an alternative. And if it is really worthy, you won't have to prove anything any more. That's why the best way to change something for the better is your own example. My life, its latest years turn into reconsidering and new life philosophy shaping. Its final meaning is to learn how to live in a right way. The right way is when nobody can dispute it. The right way is when it is very convincing, intelligible, and inspiring. It will be my revolution of consciousness. I don't know if I will get it, but this way is very challenging by itself. So everything that concerns my art and design activities has resemblance to a shadow play, rather restrained and uncertain illustrations of the inner processes. And also it looks like careful

and cautious experiments and tests for information accumulation. I have so many ideas that I even don't have any hope to realize them. And it does't matter if I live a year or fifty years more, the ideas multiply quicker then I manage to realize them. That's why I stopped to hurry. I do not make plans. I act as a situation demands. I realize the things which need fewer efforts, which are more appropriate at this moment. I have some projects started but not finished, right now I have some projects which are waiting for the start, and tomorrow I'll have some new ones. I'd like to work out the issue of conceptual architecture, where we deal with the relationships of space, volume and psychology. These are sculptural furniture, where the shape becomes tactile. These are luminous objects, conceptual installations, and sculpture as a process of the shape investigation and its influence on a person, the issues of morphology, form therapy and visual philosophy.
