On this month's edition of "Specific Objects: Talks on Art in the Catskills," host Miriam Atkin speaks with Amanda Turner Pohan (known as Pohan), a Lanesville-based interdisciplinary artist. The discussion revolves around Pohan's outdoor sculpture titled between Scylla and Charybdis, which was created in collaboration with the United States Geological Survey and is currently installed at the RIT campus. The piece was supported by a NYSCA Media Arts Assistance Fund grant and Wave Farm Radio. We also discuss her recent video work, Alexa Echoes, which screened at the 36th edition of Images Festival in Toronto.
