Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0
Mi Casa, Your Casa was on Seaport Common from Friday, January 15th through Sunday, March 14th of 2021.
Seaport’s newest, interactive art installation on Seaport Common, Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0, consists of 16 three-dimensional red frames, each emblematic of a small house. The art installation, created by artists Esrawe + Cadena, and presented in collaboration with Creos and Serge Maheu, was inspired by the mercados of Latin America, lively street markets where human connections are made every day.
The installation creates a moment to reflect on the meaning of home, a theme which has taken on even greater significance in the last year. Together, the tiny houses offer a canvas for play and engagement, allowing visitors to look through the walls of adjacent homes which offers a view into their neighbor’s parallel journey.
When a casa is empty, a welcoming white glow bids you to enter. Once inside, the glow intensifies to show that someone is home. Each structure is also complete with a swing, allowing the space to be as playful and interactive as you desire.
@seaportbos will donate one dollar to Habitat for Humanity for every image of Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 posted on Instagram that tags @seaportbos in the image and caption; the donations will help local families build or improve on a place they can call home.
