The topic that interests me currently as an artist is the voluntary lack of freedom of a person, opportunism. I study conformism based on the subject of the most widespread type of social relations - coexistence in the office, also taking into account, among other things, my own twenty-year working experience in "open space" environment.

Considering the office as a place of total control, forced dormitory, imitation of activity, exclusion, fear of dismissal, I find parallels with Kabakov's artworks on communal apartment. And if a communal apartment could be considered as a metaphor for Soviet life, then the office space – as a metaphor for capitalist life. The ideology of the communal life of socialism was replaced by the ideology of the office life of capitalism.
