You are (on) an island

Alicia Eggert and Mike Fleming - Denton, TX
Neon, wood, latex paint - 10’ x 10’ x 8’

Alicia Eggert and Mike Fleming’s dynamic work, You are (on) an island, is a neon sign whose message becomes animated by the word “on” that flashes on and off at regular intervals, creating two phrases: “You are an island” and “You are on an island”. This sly insinuation becomes a word play between one’s identity and one’s location. What is the island, and is it geographical, metaphorical, political, or ideological? By constantly flipping between these two statements, You are (on) an island prods you to think both inside and outside of oneself: an invitation to marvel at the world and the role you play in it.
