Gluing Pieces Together

To give inmates a chance to do contemplation, to think, to reform themselves. For prisoners inside, it’s not much different: no freedom, isolated, frustrating, desperate and somehow made the lonely people more aggressive. Even the building itself is decaying, like all these past objects have the structure of enclosure and abuse and falling. These two things (great conditions and to be pentitent) are irrelevant, and may lead people to thinking committing a crime isn't a big deal, because prison isn't too bad anyway. But I could feel the misery and insanity of these place and it was suffocating.
