Heather Freeman, a professor of Art (Digital Media), completed a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art and German Studies from Oberlin College in 1997 and a Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art from Rutgers University in 2000. She has taught in the College of Arts + Architecture since 2006. She is author of "The Moving Image Workshop: Introducing animation, motion graphics and visual effects in 45 practical projects," published by Fairchild Press, an imprint of Bloomsbury Academic. Additionally, Freeman is co-director of the Digital Arts Center (D+ARTS), which supports creative research by College of Arts + Architecture students, faculty and staff, who utilize digital technologies in collaborative contexts. Regardless of media, Freeman has created artworks and films that combine traditional and digital technologies to weave together the symbolic forms of science, mythology and popular culture. Her current project, "Familiar Shapes" (Winter 2019), is a feature documentary about early modern witch trials, social bots and misinformation.
