Agora Phobia (digitalis): Ambiguous Private/public Space

"Agora Phobia (digitalis) is a mobile monument for 'public isolation'. Travelling since 2000 in city public spaces such as Amsterdam, Paris, New York, Berlin it questions and archives mental images and strategies for being (un)safe and isolated. The project connects social experiences in both the physical and the virtual space creating a hybrid agora.

Project Description: Agora Phobia (digitalis) invites you in a semi-transparent, inflatable Isolation Pillar, in crowded city public spaces. Inside the Isolation Pillar one feels safe within an intimate space; and at the same time, lacking control over the outside, one feels vulnerable. The Isolation Pillar provides for an isolated communication space in which notions of being inside and being outside are reversible.

In the Isolation Pillar is an online computer. You are invited for an online dialogue with someone who lives isolated somewhere else, such as someone who has been living in prison, someone who lives in a cloister, someone living illegally in the city, a digi-persona, someone suffering from agoraphobia - who are invited as 'experience-specialists'."

(Karen Lancel and Hermen Maat)

Un-private house: private becomes public

"The incorporation of technology, as an integrated aspect of modern society, has caused the home/private sphere to become more public in theory as well as in actuality. The accessibility of the outside/public sphere from within the home with the use of technology and the opportunity to work inside the home has become an increasingly popular phenomenon."

(Tanya Oh, Art History 192, Semester 1/Spring 2004, University of California)
