Lena Hawkins creates image-based works that re-enact rare and other non-circulating materials. She practices analog techniques including producing prints, films, and microfilms in an effort to preserve and re-construct fabricated entities. Her favorite topics of conversation are unsolved mysteries, recreational vehicles, and products that are out of production.
