Hannah's practice hinges on personal and collective vulnerability inherent in physical, emotional, and social exchange. Through this lens – and often weaving together themes of map-making, geological phenomena, wayfinding, and climate change – she explores layers of memory that inform our sense of place and ways we cultivate communities.
Using site-specific, time-based, and/or transformative material, Hannah records solitary moments of meditative action in which her body physically engages with the surrounding landscape. In particular, cyanotype allows her to create accounts of her physical presence in landscape, documenting both the exposure to light, the passage of time, and physical contact with the natural elements on site. Ongoing projects act as photographic documentation of fleeting moments of action – a record of the state of being open and present, her skin a porous surface, her body a permeable vessel.
Through social practice projects, Hannah initiates moments of intimate exchange between herself and others, and creates platforms for vulnerability and communication. Whether through postcard writing, memory sharing, or interactive poetry, the work employs intentional, active listening to engage both the individual and the collective experience. Each exchange is a tender gesture emphasizing the capacity of radical generosity as a tool for social change.
