            Sveta paints not to please the viewer, but to express her inferiority, intense with meaning that is beyond common sense. Her images seem to be a wonder for her as much as they are for us. She is far from capitalizing on a once-found form, combination of colors, or plot: the art p...ieces range widely in style from simple and economic to elegant and sophisticated depending on the needs of the life-forms of the archetypal realm asking for expression. Freud famously said that dreams are the royal road to the Unconscious. Jung added that active imagination is also a very good way to the realm of the ultimate mystery. Sveta's art works are a happy marriage of both: the ideas, images, and colors spill freely from the radically Unknown, being Its messengers and speaking Its language. Sveta belongs with imaginative and channeling branch of artists, but not with Dali, Magritte, and Giger. Her flock is Marc Chagall, Mikalojus Eiurlionis, Niko Pirosmani. As an artist, she is direct, spontaneous, fresh, genuine, and confidently dances the line between purity and naivete. Her art is both extremely personal and completely transpersonal. That is why, I think, it flows so freely. OLENA PROVENCHER

            Service design is the activity of planning and organizing people, infrastructure, communication and material components of a service in order to improve its quality and the interaction between service provider and customers. It is now a growing field of both practice and academic... research. Designing for Service brings together a wide range of international contributors to map the field of service design and identify key issues for practitioners and researchers such as identity, ethics and accountability. Designing for Service aims to problematize the field in order to inform a more critical debate within service design, thereby supporting its development beyond the pure methodological discussions that currently dominate the field. The contributors to this innovative volume consider the practice of service design, ethical challenges designers may encounter, and the new spaces opened up by the advent of modern digital technologies.

            Her myth got God. It is not the God of a specific religion, of theological arguments, and not an abstract, fully transcendent Creator. It is not all-good, honey-sweet God, not the God of a specific gender, or with a specific name or agenda; not a judgmental, endlessly superior, a...ll-knowing one. It is very homey, even shy, and kind God, who does not know Him/Herself very well, but does understand flawed human condition. And at the same time, this God is fully other, as Mircea Eliade has it, and fully numinous-the real thing. It is the God who can only be super-personal, and come to each person in a unique way. It is a very simple and unpretentious God, who is just this: living meaning. This God is both, the ultimate subject and creator of Sveta's art. If you do not grasp such God, fine: go and find your own meaning. This is, I think, the main message of her art; at least, it is what I receive from it the most vividly: it gives me a sturdy sense of the presence of meaning. Like her God, Sveta's art is homey, warm, approachable, and kind. We all may be fans of Alex Gray and even H.R Giger speaking of the spiritual, the imaginative, the channeling type of art. But, we definitely can use some kindness on canvas. Sveta's art has a confident and distinct voice, and it speaks kindness.

            THE SVETA'S ART PHENOMENON Sveta's art is a state of consciousness as much as it is paper, pencils, and paint. How one can define this phenomenon? I considered myself fit to write about her art as I studied art all my life. First, as an artist, through countless art studios and f...ive years of an art college, then as an art historian, as a philosopher of art, and then as a Jungian psychologist and philosopher. And now, looking at her addictive, colorful pages, I am at total loss. I am in awe. It is deeper than day can comprehend, to borrow Nietzsche's expression, and layered with meaning one usually does not expect to find in art. First of all, Sveta's art is aesthetically beautiful. The composition, the flow and interaction of forms, the visual balance of the color are true. Her sense of when enough is enough is superb. She walks the line between painting too sketchy and over-perfecting the detail with taste and grace. Her mastery of form, the ability to make it speak just what was intended is dynamic and refined. Is Sveta also a colorist? Definitely; the colors come on the paper, like the forms do: freely, unpredictably, in their endless expressive variety. But, Sveta possesses tasteful and well-measured-out rigor, using the colors just so. There is also a certain aesthetically pleasing economy in her work with shapes and colors. Paul Klee said that making art is simple: it's just putting the right color in the right place. This is exactly what Sveta does. Her myth got God. It is not the God of a specific religion, of theological arguments, and not an abstract, fully transcendent Creator. It is not all-good, honey-sweet God, not the God of a specific gender, or with a specific name or agenda; not a judgmental, endlessly superior, all-knowing one. It is very homey, even shy, and kind God, who does not know Him/Herself very well, but does understand flawed human condition. And at the same time, this God is peaoefully other, as Mircea Eliade has it, and fully numinous
