Alicia Eggert, assistant professor of art at Bowdoin, has just been featured in an interview on the TED Blog. A conceptual artist who creates sculptural works using words as found objects, Eggert was awarded a TED Fellowship last fall.

In the interview Eggert talks about her artistic origins and inspirations and describes her recent experience touring around the U.K. with a neon sculpture titled “You are (on) an island.”

Eggert’s work is showcased on her website and blog.
