Work from Home
by Hanski aka Hannah Epstein
Work from home was an interactive walk in installation. Users would use their phones to text short code to a number which then triggered a response on the participant’s phone. Hannah Epstein was a MFA candidate at Carnegie Mellon and TA’d one of my sculpture classes. Her work uses humor as means of expression in reflecting serious topics and consists mainly of rug-hooking, a type of soft sculpture, and video games. It was inspiring to hear her talk about her games and how she exists in the field because before, gaming in my mind belonged only to an audience and to creators of men.
