The Templeton Five Affair
In “Templeton Five Affair, March 1967”, the protagonists of a demonstration are seen as silhouettes before the university buildings. The wallpaper component reveals a campus protest scene with the protestors removed, leaving only the modernist architecture of Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. The four panels present the same scene with the architecture missing, leaving only the protestors. In this split between actors and architecture, the artists refer to the thesis by Henri Lefebvre according to which architecture is defined by social interaction.
