Invariants by Sergey Makhno

Ordinary three-litre jars framed in concrete, wood and glass represent a new series of vases. The name of the series goes back to exact sciences, which define invariants as an object’s ability to remain unaltered despite any transformations. Another reference to math is the shape of cases representing basic geometric figures — a square, a rectangle, and a circle. At the same time, they become the symbol of unified urban landscape, where lone trees amid the concrete jungle look just as dramatic as a delicate flower in a concrete vase.
