a tale of a few cities

Petra Vadehra von Treskow , Mies und Karl

Below is an inspired set of photo collage, circa 2000.  Mies van der Rohe via Petra Vadehra von Treskow with a little help from a fellow called Karl, a fictional character who traversed the globe, aloft in the sky in search of the light that was Mies. I love this fairytale. Only this past week I spotted a Zephyr floating high above San Francisco and it reminded me of von Treskow’s homage, prompting me to post it.
