As part of a fellowship program at YBCA, Bay Area architects Kelly Gregory and Brett Snyder and new media artist Liat Berdugo are on a creative quest to find answers to the question: "Can we design freedom?"
Defining the word "freedom" isn't easy. The Merriam-Webster dictionary offers a dizzying array of possibilities, from "the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action," to "improper familiarity".
But Gregory, Snyder and Berdugo want to engage people in creating and understanding their own definitions of freedom in a playful, personal way, because, as Snyder puts it, "there isn't a one size fits all" approach to the concept.
