Professor Eng primarily teaches courses focused in ceramics and 3D mediums. In her own work, she undertakes projects that employ clay, video projections, and sounds to create layered and contemplative pieces as well as compositions using found materials. Change, decay, and regeneration are central content to these artworks and her work grapples with topics, such as climate change, land use/development, and their connection to memory.
