Dying for the Other is a video triptych addressing a situation of shared suffering involving mice used in breast cancer research, and humans afflicted with the same disease. In order to produce this video, da Costa documented scenes of her own life during the summer of 2011 and combined them with footage taken at a breast cancer research facility in New York City over the same time span.
Dying for the Other, is part of da Costa’s Cost of Life project series, currently being developed at Eyebeam and supported by the Creative Capital Foundation.

Flock House is a group of migratory, public, sculptural habitats that host on underused urban infrastructure as they move with the help of preexisting transportation routes: from barges to flat bed trucks to helicopters, they can easily catch a ride to the next destination while living off and providing for their surroundings.
Commencing in New York City and choreographed throughout urban centers in the United States and three planes of living (subterranean, ground, and sky) the shape and form of Flock House is inspired by current global human migration patterns. Built collaboratively upon reclaimed, redesigned, and rethought materials within a gift culture, Flock House sets out to inspire reinvention of mobile structures in a time when growing urban populations are faced with imminent environmental, political, and economic instability.
