Vanessa Joan Mueller on Natalie Czech's work: "Czech established [...] methods of simultaneously overlapping different shots as early as her 2002 series "Blattschnitte" (Sheet lines). Based on aerial photographs taken by government surveying offices and originally meant to help make maps, Czech layers various aerial photographs of the same places on top of each other. The digitally corrected photographs, almost precisely alike, document the traces of change in the space and urban architecture, which have been inscribed in the towns and landscapes. As a result, in Czech's abstract montages, with their geometric, chromatic modules, there is no longer any before/after, but simply the simultaneity of a world that seems to have already disseminated internally."
