In yet another series of image experiments, with miners traditionally posing as the main characters, Roman Minin reflects on the current situation in the country. The artist compares the round shape of his works with the shape of Petri dishes (used in microbiology and chemistry labs for experiments). Minin draws a parallel between recent events and a boisterous chemical reaction with high temperature, oxidization, evaporation, crystallization, and setting of sediment. The author asks himself a question to which extent this reaction is controlled, what its duration and final result are going to be.
