Know the saying, "The inmates are running the asylum"? Well, if the inmates actually were running the asylum, we imagine the asylum might look something like this!

Sweet Surrender! The World's Most Delicious Padded Cell

Inhabitat writes, "On the outside, it's an unassuming, wood paneled, shed-like box. On the inside, it's a room straight out of Willy Wonka with walls covered in hot pink cotton candy, free for the eating. New York-based artist Jennifer Rubell created the piece of edible art, "Padded Cell," for Performa Arts' Red Party back in November. The freestanding 8-by-16 foot room is constructed from basic building materials with a single door. Inside, the walls and ceiling are padded with 1,600 cones of cotton candy, illuminated by a single light bulb."
