In 1958, he started experimenting with magnetic fields, which became the foundation of his work. In 1960 the French Ministry of Industry awarded him a patent for ”Telesculpture” and for ”Electromagnetic Telesculpture”. In 1964, under his initiative, began the construction of the Centre for Arts and Sciences in Gerovouno.
