In Christian Orthodox tradition the Red Corner is a sacral place in the house where religious icons and the most precious objects are displayed. The role of an icon used to be, and still remains, quite essential for some people in my country (Ukraine). I was questioning what type of feelings an icon evokes in a domestic environment. It can be both a sense of protection, but also an impression of being constantly watched and controlled. It reminds me of a CCTV camera. You know that you are being guarded, but also under surveillance, which may bring anxiety and enhance self-consciousness.
