Agora Phobia (digitalis) is a project taking place in physical as well as virtual environment. It deals with the flexible concept of safety in public and private spaces. Agora Phobia (digitalis) challenges the viewer/participant to go into the experiences related to isolation, safety, vulnerability and private/public. Inside the "isolation pillar" pictured above the visitor can engage in a closed internet dialogue with a person living in isolation. These people are for example a prison, a nun, a hermit, an agoraphobic person, a refugee. Extracts of the dialogues are published in the website where also the public can take part in discussion and send messages.

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.
