A PHOTO CHALLENGE OF PLACES WE SIT…OR MIGHT SIT…OR ART ABOUT SITTING
This is a set of prisoner weighing scales in Spike Island Prison, Cork, Ireland. Dating from the late 1800’s, they represent a shift in penal policy towards reform rather than punishment. Prisoners were weighed upon arrival and again when they were being discharged to ensure they hadn’t experienced excessive weight loss during their incarceration.
