Dying For the Other


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‚Äôs Cost of Life project series, currently being developed at Eyebeam and supported by the Creative Capital Foundation.
