BROOKLYN - Have you ever wondered what it's like to live in a jail cell? For just $1 a night, you can find out. 

Artist Miao Jiaxin is giving people the chance to go behind bars in Bushwick as part of an experimental exhibit. 

Participants can choose to stay for two to five nights, and are required to spend at least three hours a day inside with the door shut. There's also a 24/7 live stream posted online. 

The cell's first guest checks in Aug. 1, and Jiaxin says he's almost booked through September.
