  • Fountains

    Fountains, 2014, single channel HD video installation, silent, cast glass and aluminum chain Installed at Arthur Roger Gallery, January – February 2015 “In Fountains, 2014, swooping aluminum chains connect a collection of cast glass bottles, arranged like a chandelier on the wall. The projection of a silent but frenzied flow of water animates the bottles and delicate metal chains, running up, down, and bubbling inside the bottles. The ceaseless streams appear so convincing, despite their illogical directions and speed, that […]

    Crystal Gazers 2014 Forged metal, cast glass, wire, HD video projection 35 x 60 x 8 inches Installed at Arthur Roger Gallery, Jan-Feb 2015 “Crystal Gazers, 2014,… merges glass sculpture and projections, creating a luminescent vegetal object. Clusters of glass medallions, reminiscent of sand dollars, hang from sinuous iron branches, refracting and magnifying the projected purple and green light. In the negative space between the gem-like discs, glimmering bursts of light fade to tiny motes, like a fantastic snowfall or […]

  • Dreamcatchers

    interactive single channel video installation, 2013 Night blooming cereuses open when movement is detected, and slowly close when no motion is detected. “From afar, Dreamcatcher, 2013, appears static—a strange tropical bud jutting from a pale green and pink stalk. The blooming process seems suspended indefinitely, but as the viewer takes a few strides closer a cocoon of red spikes unfurls to reveal delicate white petals surrounding a chorus of tiny yellow and white stamen. The viewer determines whether the motion-activated flower […]

    Gushers

    Gushers, 2010, single channel video with sound, speaker parts, 40″ x 54″ x 14″ This installation was inspired by my childhood experience of aquatic lillies. “Struck by how the plants co-existed with oily sheens on the waters of the Pearl River, Egan recreates the impression here. Using electronic buzzing and popping sounds the plants appear to grow from the speakers, reminding us that nature can be mimicked with technology, but, ultimately, we cannot reinvent nature.” – Lee Gray, curator, Hilliard […]

Using the floor of the gallery space as a screen for the projection of her hallucinatory flower image compositions to a drone-like and beat-heavy musical accompaniment broadcast by low-fi speakers, Egan takes the viewer into the space of Digital Animism, an expression she coined to describe her […]

    Soft Spots

    Soft Spots (Japanese Magnolia), 2008, single channel video projection, size variable Soft Spots was created with images of a Japanese magnolia flower, a common ornamental in New Orleans. In the looping projected image, petals drop from a continually dying and re-blossoming flower. During a petal’s fall to the ground, a projectile, apparently targeting the petal, misses and sends the petal spinning or flipping, until it gently lands on the floor below.   Soft Spots reflects on forces that guide and influence lives.
