A decades-long human subject experiment

From a New York Times mulutimedia presentation.
[Donny Johnson] lives in an 8-by-12-foot concrete cell. His meals are pushed through a slot in the door. Except for the odd visitor, with whom he talks through thick plexiglass, he interacts with no one. He has not touched another person in 17 years. [No cats either.]
He paints by using colors extracted from the shells of M&M's.
