As a person who identifies with "other," my perspective is outside the boundaries of the norm. In the past, my work has been informed by my other abilities and the relationship of mechanically designed machines to our bodies. But after spending most of the pandemic in the lush, green forests, listening to the birds sing while hunting moss, lichen, & mycelium, I truly believe that the answer we're looking for lies under our feet, beneath the soil, in the complex system of the natural world. This regenerative spirit inspires my work & convinces me that this is our hope for the future. As my work evolves to include the body's relationship with the natural world, my Polyphonic Art assemblages continue to keep me busy building on that solid utilitarian nature as I continue to look to the natural world to inspire beauty in my art.
Lu Hanna is a queer, transmedia artist with other/different abilities whose work is process-based in myriad of mediums, driven by concept. Critical thinking and research inform the method, while the nature of the material allows my learning to continue.
Just as in the natural world, adaptation is paramount to our own survival. However, the way in which we choose to adapt is as unique as you and I. -LH
