Petra Vadehra von Treskow , Mies und Karl

Posted in architecture, Art, Collage, cut & paste, Photography by petercombe on November 25, 2009

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.

Art Font

Posted in Art, San Francisco by petercombe on September 28, 2009

I gave the following pictures to my partner to mark an occasion this past February. After a snapping visit to the SFMoMA, I noticed much of the art I photographed could be interpreted as font. It should really be a no-brainer to decipher.
