Save Event: Desiring to be Data for Others

Amanda Turner Pohan's practice seems a cool and rational one—at first.


It is based on precise scientific manipulation of chemistry, with additional aural and visual elements. While her installation appears clean, methodical, a presentation organized with minimalist clarity and order, one senses a vague urgency to quantify the unquantifiable.

Vials contain various arcane liquids; vapors and perfumed formulas derive from 'recorded data measured by sensors of the heartbeat of the artist.' Yet, the clinical easily transmutes into the poetic and the personal. The effect is oddly sensual, even erotic as the artist manages an olfactory manipulation that is subtle and evocative. Finally, Pohan's creative processing, packaging, and ordering, conjures a self-portrait that becomes a metaphor for the bodied and disembodied nature of human response.
