This work, whose title means “spark” in Russian, explores the concept of energy transfer, dragging a simple idea though a “gestation” process resulting blocks of various thicknesses. It can be seen as a metaphor of the anarchical system, in which several connate areas grow organically then finally form a dynamic and interactive network.
