An allegorical combination of two scientific notations, which are related to dramatic changes in technology, media and communications.
"E" stands for electric field and reminds of its effect driving semiconductor electronics, base of our information technology.
"j" is for imaginary unit, symbolising highly abstract concepts as complex numbers, seemingly far away from physical and perceptible phenomena, but powering calculations of wavelengths, electrical current, resonances...
E.j is a metaphor of the connection between idea and material, of that edge where a new process starts towards expansion, marking a whole era. Dominating technology covered our life like a dome of recursive vaults, but when it comes to the maximum, a new phase begins, with another shape, formed by a new combination, unique and unexpected.

Sergey Titov has an artistic background in sculpture, and since 2008 he has been working together with Alexandra Gavrilova as Stain.
Stain centers on abstract forms and concepts seeking to find a focus point in today's polydimensional flow of information, understanding creative processes as a means to render one's image of the world and of oneself, and to learn more about the principles of Nature.
