The Prison

The sadness of prison is not losing freedom, it's losing connection to society and ability to start a normal life after release.

According to data from Bureau Of Justice Statistics, among state prisoners released in 30 states in 2005 — about two-thirds (67.8%) of released prisoners were arrested for a new crime within 3 years, and three-quarters (76.6%) were arrested within 5 years.

I build this piggy bank to represent the prison. Coins have different fates judged by their values - something they can't decide. Dollars are the lucky ones, it's easy for them to get out. Quarters are not as lucky as Dollars, but they get their chance occasionally. Who's left? Pennies have been forgotten.
