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!
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."
"Rubell describes it as 'an all-American funhouse that is at the same time confining, threatening, claustrophobic. It is an object that addresses the dark side of pleasure, the price of pleasure, the possibility that pleasure is its own punishment.'"
