Agora(s) consists of five large screens showing video clips of people in public spaces around the world. The images are set against a hypnotic soundtrack, with movements in all five screens repeated as they follow the sounds like a metronome; the bodies vibrate synchronously, forming an overall choreography. Viewers will notice anonymous others they usually ignore, and also reflect on their own interaction with the outside world.
