Hayal Pozanti is a Turkish artist based in New York who works primarily in painting. Her work is based upon a 31-symbol alphabet of her making that she calls “Instant Paradise,” which she uses to represent numbers culled from various sources of demographic and anthropological data. Taking inspiration from hieroglyphic languages, Pozanti seeks to create a symbolic code aligned with a type of human impulse and resistant to social management by way of algorithmic logics. Her work was included in The Kitchen’s 2016 group show “From Minimalism into Algorithm,” and she participated in a panel discussion as part of The Kitchen’s L.A.B. series.
