Dynamics of spiritual and physical evolutions, largely reflecting static and kinetic dialectics of the Universe is represented in the TransSphere project. According to the concept of the project under the motto 'Perpetual motion' (very similar to Heraklidan 'Panta Rei' - 'all is changing') the exposition TransSphere will consist of three parts: Spherographics (photo and graphics), Spherogram (computer animation) and TransSphere (objects executed in levkas technique).

It's the levkases that are the main dominant and center of the entire exposition, to which the room's plane proper and the main volume of informative visual demonstration of the exhibition belong. Four spheres executed in levkas technique and put as moving planets on the axis which has a triangle in the basis (irregular pyramid with the cut summit), and covered with painting as animated cosmological subjects (possibly planets), simultaneously presented as kinetic sculptures, will be presented both as absolutely movable in their combinative interrelations between themselves and MOBILE space. According to Aristotelian cosmology and teaching on the prime mover there are three kinds of subjects in respect to movement - immovable, self-moving and moving with the help of other subjects. Self-moving subjects and those of the third kind cannot be a source of uninterrupted and even movements. By virtue of this fact the prime mover does not move itself. Combinatorial will of their various existing combinations of drives vectors is a model of this prime mover of the world. According to Aristotle it is the world of perpetual motion, being i.e. the God. Such heights of generalizations can come to mind if also to thoroughly observe metamorphoses placed in space and on the plane of the four spheres, perfectly shown in computer animation of that part of the project which is called 'Spherogram'. According to its geometrical nature the axis's triangular basis is an edge, an arrow, a vector, an indicator of the movement direction as well as the directed movement proper. The sphere rested and crowned on the axis is some self-sufficient world. To the sphere from underneath attached is the prime mover which communicates a directed rectilinear movement to it. Here appropriate is the analogy with mutual motion of spiritual and material spheres towards each other, their interdependence and absolute bi-unity. The movement in the Universe - as Aristotle teaches - is perfect - round the circle and imperfect - rectilinear. The sphere is the planet with its own circular motion round the axis - is the first, and the second - towards the center and from the center of exposition is a direction of triangular bases, carrying the axes' spheres. The uniform combination of both kinds of motion is just that completeness of revelation of the image of perpetual motion. According to the calculated computer scheme the four objects - spheres - make up 16 all possible circular, centrifugal and centripetal combinations. It's them that make up the transposition of the exhibition. I suggest to show 7 positions of the four mobile spheres during 7 days ('like the days of creation of the world) in real environment (an exposition hall) and 16 positions of their (3D) models in the virtual space -"Spherogram". Depending on positions of objects each day the scheme of motion and that of combinatorial vectors of the exposition is changing, which influences the space , destroying or assembling it, compressing or stretching it and in the same way having an effect on a viewer.

The full analogy of the objects to Theological picture of the world, where kinetic objects (celestial bodies), exposition on the plane (their arrangement), and the very distance between them (cosmos, enveloping ether), being in the state of constant movement and mutual influence, can't help making an effect on an artist or a viewer, presenting them as The CREATOR, the cause of everything.
