The detail from this this installation includes examples from my Maximum Security 50 States wallpapers and textiles. The chair is upholstered with 50 States, Rhode Island, and the floor cloth is painted with the plan of Jeremy Bentham's panopticon. On the table is an embroidery of a guard tower. Also included is a perpetual calendar and a cactus to reference time, labor and tenacity. The slippers are printed with security envelope patterns.
