About Professor Freeman

A native of California, Dana has lived in Michigan since 1993, when she accepted a position at Aquinas College. Dana studied as an undergraduate at Pomona College, focusing on abstract painting and assemblage sculpture. Her M.F.A. is from the University of California, Santa Barbara in photography, video and performance/installation. 

 

Dana's work is concept driven and usually involves non-traditional art media, such as eggshells, ants, bread, sand, and flowers. It takes the form of sculpture, video, photography and installations exploring ideas of waiting, obsession, the chaos of language and a child's experiences.

Glass Books
Glass Books "...but only at a cost.  Identity shifts, and language speaks the loss which lay behind that first moment of symbolization.  When the child asks something of its mother, that loss will persist over and above anything which she can possibly give, or say , in reply.  Demand always 'bears on something other than the satisfaction which it calls for' and each time..." - Lacan   Glass Books "Language is the place where meaning circulates…there can be no final guarantee or securing of language." -Lacan
Glass Books "Symbolization starts, therefore, when the child gets its first sense that something could be missing; words stand for objects, because they only have to be spoken at the moment when the first object is lost." - Lacan   Glass Books "...the mirror image represents the moment when the subject is located in an order outside itself to which it will henceforth refer.  The subject is the subject of speech, and subject to that order." - Lacan
