Biography

Hannah Epstein (AKA hanski, AKA Dino King)is a folk media artist currently based in Pittsburgh. Of mixed Latvian and Russian-Jewish heritage, Hannah draws on her liminal identity to drive a psychedelic and collage inspired aesthetic. As a trained folklorist, critical of hierarchical power structures, Epstein’s work often lends focus to the unconventional, highlighting the fringes of cultural practice. Her work is focused on using video games as a tool of satire, by claiming and re-mixing pop-culture icons and imagery she using bottom-up story telling techniques to re-shape popular discourse. She has recently started her MFA at Carnegie Mellon.
