- SEP 04, 2013

The North American conceptual artist Alicia Eggert creates kinetic, electronic, and interactive sculptures and installations. Each piece is built around a specific idea and constructed from materials that communicate the chosen concept clearly and concisely. In essence, her work deals with a temporal conception transmitted by the stillness or the movement of the piece. Although each artwork is based on a single idea, Eggert conveys a complex world of meanings and interpretations that stem from diverse relationships and evolutions of the idea.

As Eggert explains "one simple word can contain a world of meaning," summing up the main idea behind her work. Her goal is to provoke a feeling of wonder in the viewer, a "surprise caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable." In the end, she affirms the "final product is essentially also a collaboration, this time between the artists and the audience."
