Starting point for my research are personalities like Christopher McCandless, Henry David Thoreau or Ted Kaczynski. All three have in common that they decided to life isolated from the modern civilization alone in the nature to achieve individual freedom up to the highest level. But do we achieve freedom by breaking away from society? Being in the wilderness alone creates new (or old) kinds of forces - a dependency of the natural power.TutorsAnniina Koivu, Brynjar SigurĂ°arson, Niebling Carolien
