Sound > Solitaire: Eastern State Penitentiary

Solitaire (Edit)
Sound Art

When I was 13 years old, while a patient at a residential psychiatric facility in a south eastern Pennsylvania, I was placed for roughly 2 weeks in solitary confinement. Increasingly this practices use has been placed under increased scrutiny. Despite this attention and universal pronouncement from the psychiatric community of its longterm negative impact, 80,000 Americans (men, women and children) are subjected to this barbaric practice everyday. This work of sound art seeks to give a glimpse into what being in solitary feels like. It is my hope that through sharing my own experiences we can end this torture.
