"The sense of freedom…entails not simply the absence of frustration but the absence of obstacles to possible choices and activities—absence of obstructions on roads along which a man can decide to walk." —Isaiah Berlin

Can we understand freedom as a subjective sensation?

The Freedom Simulator is a set of three experiences that aim to induce a feeling of freedom. These experiences question the manifestation and significance of freedom in our everyday lives.

Each experience is based on a modern political philosophy perspective on freedom:  positive freedom, negative freedom, and freedom in light of ethical individualism. Various techniques such as spatial audio, motion tracking, and real-time video projection are utilized.
