To obtain or heighten certain effects, painters were wont to attach objects to their canvases or wood panels. This was as true of the Dadaists as of Byzantine ikon masters. Takis has pointed out that his preoccupation with the possibilities of electromagnetism opened the way to a new approach: objects can be held in suspension at a small distance off the canvas by an extraneous force. To put it differently: in lieu of including objects which project from the surface, Takis, by an artful exploitation of magnetic attraction, introduces floating objects which become part of our vision of the pictorial space. Moreover, with judicious lighting, the slight objects, cones, antennas, disks, cork balls, suspended at an angle from a surface, cast intricate shadows on the painted panels, endowing the work with a new interpretation of the third dimension in pictorial terms.
