      This project was a collaboration between Latino day laborers from the Baltimore area, CASA de Maryland, and the Floating Lab Collective. This collective public art action served as a platform to discuss and address issues of participation, integration, access and inclusion of the laborers in the Baltimore community. Through the construction of miniature houses, the Latino day worker community was presented with a means to represent their own aspirations. Even more significantly, they were able to interface with the community about their multidimensional role as community members. Day laborers, like all immigrants, come to the US in search of opportunity for themselves and their families. The project provided an opportunity for immigrant day laborers, often intimidated by language or cultural barriers, to interact directly with the community around them through a visual representation of their dreams. After completion, the houses were displayed in different public locations across Baltimore.
