Abstract art developed from Moscow to Warsaw to Berlin and then back the other way and that was the root of the development of abstract art in the beginning--well into the middle of the early 20th century, and that idea of abstraction just stuck in my head and then the actuality of the drawings and how the synagogues were made. I invented a word, I think I invented the word...interlockingness, whatever that means, but it was about the carpentry and about the craftsmanship that went into the joining and building of the wooden synagogues and basically of the structure that was built.
[If you happen to be in Warsaw, the exhibit continues until June 20. And the Polin Museum itself is extraordinary, using the latest technology to provide a multi-sensorial experience for visitors.]
