His sculptures are functioning machines of a complex construction, for the first time created by man for contemplation, not for use. Image of motion, speed and rhythm closeness and estrangement of a world of mechanisms parallel to the world of people, immutability of its strict laws are component features of mechanics.
You’ll understand when poetry of tidewheels
Which are ahum gyrating running
With natural amassment of machines
Someday will fill all heaven’s pastures.
Where are we sadly led by Charon?
Maybe, there will be chromium-nickel.
The sewer “Singer”, pins called “Underwood”
Revoices the winged horse blue steel.
A wisp sweeps carefully woodwool.
While the century isn’t named still.
