Artist Jake Fernandez -- Performance Installation: "For All to See: The Studio as Solitary Confinement"

Artist Jake Fernandez has voluntarily entered a small windowless cell for seven days and 16 hours to experience the effects of limited sensory deprivation. He has no human contact, no clock, phone, television, radio, internet, music, or books; only silence and his own imagination.

Fernandez calls it "Seven Days and 16 Hours in Parchman Farm." The artist has paper and pencils to create drawings, or not. This is an experiment, and can be observed via live video feed at the web address noted with this release:

His isolation began at midnight on Saturday, March 22nd. There will be an interview upon his exit at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday March 30th at Art and History Museums – Maitland, 231 Packwood Ave W, Maitland, FL 32751. (407) 539-2181.
