Light always takes a moment to travel from one point to another – one second to cover 300,000 kilometres to be precise – and to reach our eyes.
American interdisciplinary artist Alicia Eggert (1981) lives and works in Texas. She graduated as a sculptor from Alfred University in New York and explores the relationship between language, image and time. Words and statements are used in her installations as found objects, and she often writes them out with (neon) light. Eggert also works as a lecturer and coordinator of the sculpture department at the University of North Texas in Denton.
