If claustrophobic spaces inspire you to create, then the Keret House, named after the writer, Etgar Keret, is the place you need to be this fall. Architect Jakub Szczesny designed and constructed this 5-foot-wide house in the tiny space between post-war and pre-war buildings in Warsaw, Poland. Shortly after completion, the house was donated to the Foundation of Polish Art and has been classified as an art installation.

Now you, the artist, can apply to live in these tiny halls for 21 days to create something beautiful. Maybe it’s all about experiencing your inner child. Ya know, the part of you that’s scared to death of tiny spaces. The part of you that breathes faster when air is scarce.

My paintings would take a dark turn, that I know for sure. And can you even get it on with that small mattress? How can an artist be inspired without sex? I’m just saying.
