Practicing Iron

Vashon Island artist Hannah Hirsekorn talks about her art using iron, creatively exploring iron's uses, implications, and qualities at our April Community Teach-In, a project of the Vashon Island Time Exchange.

Artist Hannah Hirsekorn is an interspecies social practice artist based on Vashon Island in the Puget Sound. She coordinates an artist residency on the island. Her curiosity in natural phenomenon combined with an investment in the wellbeing of the planet has been the driving force for her ecological and community focused art practice. She is the founder of the Golden Spike Guild, an interspecies artist collective that conducts observational research, develops strategies for following the natural supply chains of decoupled material understandings and creates with knowledge and care. 

Thank you, Hannah, for sharing your creativity! We are also grateful to Deborah Perpetua for facilitating the Teach-In and to Kim Clark for video editing.
