A multi-sensory experience of isolation

Written by

A new exhibition at Santa Barbara City College’s Atkinson Gallery captures what it’s like to be a child in solitary confinement. UCSB professor Richard Ross is a photographer, but his latest project, Isolated, includes sound, touch and, in many ways, social activism. KCRW’s Larry Perel met up with Ross a couple days before his show opens.
