When mice enter people’s living environment this will create a unique tension: a mouse in a cage is a pet, whereas we call it a pest when we find one in a crack or a cellar. Fascinated with the contrast, Roel de Boer has created an accommodation for mice that will reduce the distance between man and animal and blur the boundaries. With this accommodation Mouse Mates, man and mouse will become fellow inhabitants of the same space. A fascinating scene will develop; an interactive reality soap. The accommodation is a beautiful addition to your living space and a backdrop for an unscripted story.
