In the Fall of 1998, she entered the MFA program at the Mason Gross School of the Arts of Rutgers University at New Brunswick, New Jersey concentrating in installation art. While exploring the relationship between the history of science and metaphysics, Freeman's medium of choice became single channel video and digital print.
