CBAA: "Luftperspektive / Aerial View is a collaborative book made by two women: a German and an American. Photographs in this double-sided accordion book afford 360º panoramic views of the two artists’ cities: Stuttgart from the Television Tower (Fernsehturm Stuttgart) on one side, and Atlanta from the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel on the other. A poem by Rainer Maria Rilke is handwritten into the silhouettes of native birds circling above the landscapes. This artists’ book, about varying and shifting perspectives, is as light as air in one’s hands."
