The hole, control units, SuperMax Prisons, Segregated Housing Units, administrative segregation, maximum security, and solitary confinement are all terms or euphemisms used to describe the stark reality of an estimated 30,000 people in the United States who live in concrete cells, smaller than your average bathroom, for 23 hours a day. With their lives on lockdown, these prisoners are deprived of educational programs, adequate physical and mental health services, and have little contact with their families or other inmates. Just as the wholesale incarceration of 2.3 million prisoners in the United States is a relatively new pandemic, the grossly inhumane practice of long-term solitary confinement has also grown exponentially over the past 20 years.

While choosing different media and working out of different regions of the US, the artists share common themes in their experiences with race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, immigration, health and the environment.
