A few weeks ago, Georgia State University students in Dr. Toby Bolsen’s social justice and politics class built an 8×8 foot solitary confinement cell to display on campus. The cell is a replica from the Richard Ross Studio in Santa Barbara, California.
It includes an audio feature streaming interviews from juveniles who have experienced isolation. The solitary confinement cell replica will be on display in the Arts and Humanities building at Georgia State University from March through May.
Students and faculty are encouraged to go inside, listen to the stories and experience solitary confinement.
