Egg Prize

2013 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

As an artist I am always striving to create something new and unique. This prompted me to create an interactive machine that allows people to engage themselves with tangible art first hand. I do not view the actual machine itself as the main art of this piece. Although the machine has been designed with art theory in mind, I feel the art of the piece is what lies with in the eggs and the people that engage with it. In a rapidly changing world, the search for individuality is growing immensely. I feel people are searching for this and I wanted to give people that experience. Every item in the eggs are unique and have been created or hand picked by me. To further this unique experience, I felt it best to fill the eggs with as many original hand made creations as time allowed. I am calling them chippees. Processes include Water color, markers, stamps, collage, letter press, charcoal, computer graphics, found objects and the list goes on.

This is a short film recapping last years Egg Prize at Art Prize 2012.
