Comments: 16 x 22,5 x 3,5 cm; 42 single plates in a box, limited edition of 70 signed and numbered copies.

The Polytechnic Museum is the largest museum dedicated to technology and science in Russia. There are more than 150 collections and 190,000 unique objects from different areas of scientific knowledge in the Museum's holdings. The Museum's exhibitions describe the history of various technologies and its inventors and explain the principles of how technical devices work.

From 2012-2013 the building that houses the Polytechnic Museum was being prepared for a major restoration and its collections were placed into temporary storage.

The museum is currently closed and the restoration has already begun.

The exhibits have been disassembled, but traces of the presence of the removed items staying there over the course of many years remain. While taking photographs it was interesting for us to identify the features of interaction between man, history, and time. These heroes inhabit quite a surreal space where the Museum can only be recognized through its certain parts that have not yet been dismantled. The onlookers can now imagine themselves how all of these separate parts were making up a united image of the history of technological progress.  The project was implemented with the support of the Polytechnic Museum.
