Created by artist Jessica Feldman and meant to mimic the living conditions of inmates on Rikers Island jail (NYC), a 5 foot tall by 15 foot wide prison cell will be placed in Petrosino Square in the Manhattan neighborhood of SoHo. The replica will be equipped with a video displaying a film of prisoners, meant to simulate the living conditions of inmates. Three people will be able to fit inside at a time to see what it would really be like to be incarcerated.
