This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Alice Aycock, known for her large-scale installation sculptures, many of them outdoor pieces, refers to her work as "psycho-architecture" because they invite the viewer into mysterious interiors and often arouse discomfitting feelings of claustrophobia or vertigo. Many of her pieces result from her observations of the affects of industrialization on human beings.

Aycock was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. After completing her undergraduate work at Douglass, she earned a masters degree from Hunter College.  Currently she is Director of Sculpture at Yale University.

Ms. Haycock had a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1977, has had two retrospective exhibitions since then,k and for that museum, built a permanent structure in the Project Room.

She has had exhibitions in the Americas, Europe, and Japan permanently sited outdoor works including the following: The Solar Wind in Salem, Virginia; The House of Stoics in Lake Biwa, Japan; the Tower of Babel in Bushnami Sculpture Garden near Houston, Texas; and Fantasy Sculpture II"in Urbana- Champaign, Illinois.

In New York City, The East River Park Pavilion, leading North American venue for the exhibition of large-scale sculptures, celebrated its 30th anniversary in 1990 with a show of Aycock's drawings and sculptures.  Working with Nicholas Quennell of the landscape firm of Quennell Rothschild Associates and HOK/TCA, Associated Architects for New York Hospital, she designed a sculptural roof installation that was completed in the fall of 1995.

Closely collaborating with the new San Francisco Public Librarys principal architect, James Ingo Freed of Pei, Cobb, Freed and Partners, she inaugurated a new work-functional and fantasy spiral stairs and a suspended Cyclone Fragment in April of 1996.
