The '72 Hour Cabin' is a social experiment and art project that aims to answer a question: "can nature really cure stress?"

The program, which plans on investigating nature's effects on human beings, is sending five individuals who all hold incredibly stressful job positions, into a glass-enclosed "chillout cabin" situated on a whimsical island. The five participants, who consist of "a London broadcaster, a Parisian taxi driver, an event planner from New York, a German police officer, and a British travel journalist," will be forbidden from contacting the outside world, but are invited to hike, cook, fish and swim while taking in the gorgeous surroundings.

Researchers will be present throughout the experiment, monitoring any changes in the participants well-being, stress levels and problem-solving abilities.
