We have wanted to touch base with Hannah for awhile. She is always hustling and has quite a vibrant presence! So we finally got a moment to get into her head and see what part of her story was!
How did you end up in NYC?
A plane…I wanted to come here since I can remember. This is my home.
And “Bird Set Free”—a Sia song, I’ve loved her since her very first album came out in 2004. I remember every single moment about where I was/what I felt/what was going on in my life/how this song became my them, when I first heard it. And my sister-in-law drew it.
Do you suffer from FOMA(fear of missing out), or RTNW (rush to nowhere syndrome)? Do you think if you lived outside of NYC you would or would not feel the same?
I thought I did. But I think I have a very clear trajectory of where I want to go and what it takes to get there (even though it looks like chaos to the outside eye) and so every moment not spent working towards that can sometimes nag at me—if that’s FOMA than yes. BUT, if it’s just “where are we getting turnt up tonight” “who is hanging out with who?”—than no, I could care less.
And I think living in NYC is just an example of what I was talking about earlier—I was just as crazy as a kid focused and dreaming about moving to NYC…?
What was the most revealing thing you noticed about your space when being photographed in it?
I think, how each area of my space has it’s purpose. It’s set up and used in a very specific way.
What happens when you accomplish all the stickies?
They come off the wall and are replaced with more.
Did you learn anything? Did you have fun?
All said and done, I had a lot of fun. I learned Tristan calls out the shit that he sees. And then he takes a photo of it. About myself? I am really comfortable with my process.
