Ariel Hahn


I am an artist, archivist, and librarian interested in questions of time, history, power, technology, and the natural world. I like to think about analog media, radical queer futures, networks of plant decay, and the transformative possibilities of digital tools. I am an MLIS candidate in the Department of Information Studies at UCLA and organizer for README, a student group that advocates for digital rights within libraries, archives, and information work. Currently, I intern with the Women's Center for Creative Work / Feminist Library on Wheels as a 2018-2019 Mellon Foundation Fellow for the UCLA Community Archives Lab. I enjoy riding bikes, foraging for mushrooms, and smelling flowers. Some of my favorite books include The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson and Zami by Audre Lorde. I’m currently reading N.P. by Banana Yoshimoto.
