Angie Eng is a visual artist who works in experimental  video, conceptual art and time-based media.

Eng was born in San Francisco California. She was trained as a painter (UC Santa Barbara) in the post-classical tradition. In 1993 she moved to New York City  and  soon discovered time-based arts. During this time she became involved in the downtown electronic arts scene where she experimented with video sculptures, interactive installation and live video performance. She collaborated on numerous multimedia performance projects, including The Poool a live video group she co-founded and co-directed with Nancy Meli Walker and Benton Bainbridge in 1996-1999. She was involved in the first wave of new media art/web based art in the late 90’s with commissions from Turbulence (New Radio and Performing Arts) and the former Alternative Museum. Her experimentation with interactive installation began during her first solo show at Artists Space in 1997 with exploration of physical and virtual presence in line with Peter Campus and Vito Acconci. She does not limit herself to one medium nor genre, but chooses the one that best fits her concepts ranging from nomadicism, psychogeographics, liminality, ecology, rituals and synchronicity.

Her work has been performed and exhibited at established venues such as, Whitney Museum at Philip Morris, Lincoln Center Video Festival, The Kitchen, New Museum of Contemporary Art, Renssalaer Polytechnic Institute, Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, Roulette Intermedium , Bronx Museum, Artists Space, Art in General, Anthology Film Archives, Experimental Intermedia, Le Cube, Maison PopCNES, and Cité de la Musique. Her videos have been included in digital art festivals in local and international venues in Cuba, France, Greece, Japan, China, Holland, Italy, Georgia, Germany, Former Yugoslavia and Canada.

For her multimedia and new media projects she has received grants and commissions : New  Radio and Performing Arts, Harvestworks, Art In General, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, New York State Council on the Arts, Jerome Foundation, Alternative Museum, and Experimental TV Center Finishing Funds and Foundation for Contemporary Arts.
