Laurencic revealed he was inspired by modern artists, such as surrealist Salvador Dali and Bauhaus artist Wassily Kandinsky to create the six-by-four-foot cells placed secretly in Barcelona, which featured “sloping beds at a 20-degree angle that were almost impossible to sleep on … irregularly shaped bricks on the floor that prevented prisoners from walking backwards or forwards” walls “covered in surrealist patterns designed to make prisoners distressed and confused,” and lighting effects “to make the artwork even more dizzying.”
