Detenerse en los tejados
Going to the top of several buildings and standing quietly on the edge of the roof for a short time.
The roof is the highest point of a building, and is usually a restricted area and not equipped for use. Here it is used as a place – a space that can be occupied by a body – where a person can spend some time, reversing the body's position in relation to the architecture – which becomes a medium rather than a container –, and drawing attention to the scale of the urban landscape compared to that of a body that can often go unnoticed.
