administrative segregation

Acknowledging that upwards of eighty-thousand individuals in the United States alone find themselves remanded to solitary confinement on any given day, this decade-old participatory project—via Things Magazine—takes solicitations for open sky visions and images from the incarcerated and attempts to pair them with volunteer arts and photographers to deliver.
