"In a kind of post-Smithson gesture, Pocock establishes the conditions by which the visual field can produce itself as a kind of framed chemical spill wherein the codes of representation and abstraction melt down into a hybrid state. (painting, photography, photography, painting, meta-painting, meta-photograph)"

JOSHUA DECTER , in Ambiguities of Certainty: Curtis Anderson, Adam Fuss, James Nares, Philip Pocock, Peter Shuyff, Andrés Serrano, Casa Cultura Tenerifa catalogue, 1991.

WHAT IS DATATECTURE?
To find the solution to a problem, regardless of whether it is a chemical problem or a political one, you have to dissolve it: dissolve hydrogen, dissolve parliament. Therefore, we will now dissolve images and sound.
JEAN LUC GODARD, 1968.
