Call for Entries- "Agoraphobia/Claustrophobia"

Agoraphobia/Claustrophobia

The equal yet opposite fear of small and large spaces plague people around the world. In some degree, there are places that will always provide a sense of anxiety, and this show wants to explore those carnal fears in an open forum. We invite all mediums to show us those spaces or landscapes that inspire these fears of the vast or the small.
