MEGAN PAHMIER

ARTIST STATEMENT

Through my work, I attempt to activate the unseen. Engaging with the phenomenology and psychology of space, I create minimal objects that reveal the instability of human perception. Experience is formed through our attention to things. My objects and actions work to animate the material world, drawing viewers into an encounter. Through my practice, I ask: What is our understanding of connectivity today? And how do objects “speak” in ways images cannot? I construct three-dimensional “drawings” that emerge and recede in relation to their environment through the techniques of camouflage, illusion, and manipulations of scale. Occupying a space far beyond their own physicality, my work seeks to address aspects of encounters that are difficult to represent or capture through language or image: vibrations, forces, energies. Felt presences that require nearness.
