“Alicia Eggert sculpts neon, steel, and time to make art that inspires reflection and wonder at the finite nature of human life within a seemingly infinite universe. In September 02022, Alicia brought “This Present Moment,” a sculpture adapting the words of Stewart Brand, the co-founder of The Long Now Foundation and creator of the Whole Earth Catalog, to Mount Washington. The neon sign was re-assembled among the mountain’s bristlecone pine trees (pinus longaeva), some of the longest-lived trees in the world. This documentary traces the sign’s journey to the mountaintop and explores the power art has in shaping the way we think about time.”
