Evelyn Glennie: What freedom looks like

Dame Evelyn Glennie finds freedom in the idea of vibrations. Originally from Scotland, the musician has been profoundly deaf since the age of 12. She started losing her hearing at eight years old.

She told the BBC: "If we truly look, we see so many things vibrate around us... When you allow the body to listen, and I mean the whole body to listen, you are really observing the environment that you are in."

We have been asking the world what freedom looks like to them, with people around the globe sharing their images, photographs and videos.
