Alicia Eggert is an interdisciplinary artist whose work primarily takes the form of kinetic, electronic and interactive sculpture. She received a bachelor's degree in Interior Design from Drexel University in Philadelphia, and then practiced at an architectural firm in New York for several years before earning an MFA in Sculpture from Alfred University in New York. Her artwork, which remains strongly rooted in design, focuses on the relationship between language, image and time. Alicia's work has been exhibited at institutions nationally and internationally, including the CAFA Art Museum in Beijing; the Triennale Design Museum in Milan; ISEA2012 at the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History in New Mexico; Cyberfest 2012 in St. Petersburg, Russia; Sculpture By the Sea in Sydney, Australia; and throughout the US, UK, Europe and Canada. Her work has been featured in publications such as Typoholic: Material Types in Design, The Foundations of Digital Art and Design, and ASPECT V.21: A Good Place To Stop. Alicia has been awarded a TED2013 Fellowship, the 2014 Individual Artist Fellowship from the Maine Arts Commission, and the Grand Prize in the Dave Bown Projects 6th Semiannual Competition. She currently lives in Portland, Maine, and is an Assistant Professor of Art at Bowdoin College.
