Agora: From Democracy to the Market by Yorgos Avgeropoulos

"Το ντοκιμαντέρ του ΓιÏŽργου ΑυγερÏŒπουλου «Αγορά» (Agora), συνθέτει ένα ανακεφαλαιωτικÏŒ χρονικÏŒ της κοινωνικής τραγωδίας που μαστίζει την Ελλάδα την τελευταία πενταετία, θέτοντας κρίσιμα ερωτήματα για μια παγκÏŒσμια συστημική κρίση σε εξέλιξη και μία ευρωπαÏŠκή διακυβέρνηση που διεξάγει οικονομικά πειράματα υψηλού ρίσκου χωρίς να υπολογίζει το ανθρÏŽπινο κÏŒστος."

(ΓιÏŽργος Ρούσσος, 10 Ιανουάριος/January 2015, TVXS)

Translated using Google Translate: "The documentary of George Avgeropoulos "Buy» (Agora), composes a summary chronicle of social tragedy plaguing Greece the last five years, posing critical questions for a global systemic crisis in progress and a European economic governance carried out risky experiments without count the human cost."

e-topia: Urban Life, Jim--But Not As We Know It

"The global digital network is a whole new urban infrastructure–one that will change the forms of our cities as dramatically as railroads, highways, electric power grids, and telephone networks did in the past. In this lucid, invigorating book, William Mitchell examines this new infrastructure and its implications for our future daily lives. He argues that we must extend the definitions of architecture and urban design to encompass virtual places as well as physical ones, and proposes strategies for the creation of cities that not only will be sustainable but will make economic, social, and cultural sense in an electronically interconnected and global world."

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'."
