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.
