Miao Jiaxin Studio is offering a “room” with a cage around the bed for as little as $1/night. It’s part of a performance piece.
Artist Miao Jiaxin had originally put the ad up on AirBnB, but it was removed (possibly because it might’ve ruffled some feathers).
He’s advertising the original AirBnB ad on Facebook, which you can view here.
