Watching the prison life of Ai Weiwei

Ai Weiwei, the world famous Chinese artist re-created his window-less prison cell in several half-size boxes, where the curious exhibition-visitor (currently at the Royal Academy of Art in London) is encouraged to peep in through small windows to see him living his prison life. He was followed 24 hours/day by two guards, who were instructed not to talk to him. I had the privilege to visit the exhibition today, took some photos and here you can peep into the prison-boxes too:
