As a part of the early Soviet youth movement, the constructivists took an artistic outlook aimed to encompass cognitive, material activity, and the whole of spirituality of mankind. The artists tried to create art that would take the viewer out of the traditional setting and make them an active viewer of the artwork. Their output covered a wide range of both art and design, as well as architecture - ranging from theater, film and photography, from fashion design to graphic design, as well as to fine art such as painting and sculpture. Alongside involving themselves in designs for the fledgling Soviet industry, the Constructivists also worked on public festivals and street designs for the post-October revolution Bolshevik government.
The constructivists tried to create works that would make the viewer an active participant of the artwork. This premise was tested in theatre, particularly through the work of Vsevolod Meyerhold, who had developed a 'biomechanical' acting style, which was influenced both by the circus and by the 'scientific management' theories of Frederick Winslow Taylor. Meanwhile the stage sets by the likes of Vesnin, Popova and Stepanova tested Constructivist spatial ideas in a public form.
