In the era of digitalization, the unprecedented speed of technological progress provokes socio-technological transformations. Urban space, as a key element of social life, undergoes constant changes that affect the existence of the individual. More and more people are striving to create their own unique world that encompasses both the mental and physical dimensions. This phenomenon, known in urban studies as 'satelliteization,' implies the development of urban areas beyond the central core.

The photo series is based on real architectural structures of various cities around the world, whose architecture and aesthetics send many viewers to the cities of the future, where, in my opinion, an even greater speed of changes and decentralization will prevail, both in the digital and mental aspects."

This translation captures the essence of the original Russian text, discussing the concept of 'satelliteization' in the context of urban development and the impact of digitalization on societal and architectural transformation.

The series is inspired by the ideas of Constructivism.

Constructivism was an artistic and architectural philosophy that originated in Russia beginning in 1913 by Vladimir Tatlin. This movement was in favor of art as a practice for social purposes. Constructivism had a great influence on modern architecture and design, and it was also an important influence on the Bauhaus and De Stijl movements. Its geometric abstraction in art is reflected in the photo series, which draws upon the Constructivist ideals of functionality, modernity, and a devotion to advancing society through design and architecture.
