A three-​dimensional puzzle telling the story of a long-​distance acquaintance. The blue and red elements are models of homes, while the gray is the air that sur­rounds them. In reality the two buil­dings are separated by the distance of thousands of miles, one being a block of flats in Warsaw, the other a tenement house in New York. They are separated by volumes of air, but con­nec­ted by a friendship between the artist and his colleague who, in spite of their ardent correspondence, have never met in person.
