Andrew Dadson, Roof Gap, Still
Andrew Dadson’s Roof Gap employs the concept of the derive (the drift), a Situationist International based interaction with architecture that is typically enacted in urban centers. In this instance, the practice is explored in the suburbs. Dadson leaps from roof to roof in a neighborhood of tract houses in Vancouver Canada defying the boundaries and property lines established by the fences below. Dadson’s actions question the notions of ownership, borders, privacy, and neighborly relationships often associated with the suburbs.
