deConstruction

Vancouver is crumbling. Or perhaps it’s being methodically taken apart brick by brick. Whether for reasons of density, seismic upgrade, or simply escalating value, old houses, schools, and movie theatres are being demolished to make way for the new. Referencing Jacques Derrida’s semiotic text, deConstruction is an ongoing series of photographs and short films that capture the dismantling of the historic city. What might have been inhabited for half a century can be demolished in a day. The bulldozers are like surgical tools: they hesitate and meander before digging in, creating a dance, a conversation between static structure and the choreography of change.
