The Illuminated Space: A Personal Theory and Contemplative Practice of Media Art

The Illuminated Space

From The 3rd Thing Press –“Marilyn Freeman offers up a contemplative practice of dowsing for and creating “opportune moments” of insight and healing in time-based art. With humor and humility, Freeman reveals an innovative process developed over years of art-making, study and personal searching—a process of waking up again and again to the extraordinary possibilities hidden in everyday existence.”

Advance Praise for The Illuminated Space

Art gives form to what we have experienced but have not found a way to express, and Freeman gives expression to what makes this act so vital. Stop, look, listen. Reflect. See how our past shapes our present and our present reshapes our past. Illuminate a dialectic. In a lyrical, devoutly modest and vibrantly alive voice, Freeman awakens us to numinous possibilities that await both in art and in the whole wide world around us. It is a book of uncommon grace.” – Bill Nichols, author of numerous books including Introduction to Documentary, 3rd ed
