Penguin. The theme of the piece was dictated by the amazing shape of a vacuum cleaner. It’s an old Russian Chaika vacuum cleaner, produced back in 1970. It was the shape of the housing that determined implementation of the vision. The selection of parts helped make the work look aesthetic and original, while also inspiring a smile. I believe that unexpected decisions always evoke great emotions. I always think about that when I’m working. The strangest and most original decision was to use a stainless steel device used in gynaecology. It’s the penguin’s beak. So the steel bird is ready for another routine dive.
