Philadelphia – Eastern State Penitentiary (Identity Control)

In some of the cells at the Eastern State Penitentiary there are art installations of various different kinds. Created by local artist Tyler Held, this is perhaps one of the most ambitious, as it involved getting an entire car into the cell. The car has been stripped down of any identity, which is the purpose behind the installation, it’s to show that prison life can strip the individual of their identity and individuality.
