The constructivists as a group were vastly different than the surrealists. The Constructivists analyzed, prodded, tested and assessed- while the surrealists seemed play and mess around- making art into a random act trying to hash out the unconscious. Rodchenko's section in the constructivist "organization" was called the objective analysis group. The bases of the analysis were the structural elements and laws of composition used in the creation of a work. The effects of this return to the roots are clearly evident in Rodchenko's spatial constructions.

The curved forms combined with sharp tooth like points create a very mixed message. Sometimes described as "insectoid" and "predatorial" because of the sharp angles- the work nevertheless is equally flowing. These sharp angles and insectoid features are connected by smooth liquid sweeps of curvilinear shapes. « mai multe referate din Psihologie
