Hannah van den Elzen (she/her, 1999) is a speculative designer based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Fascinated by the longly existing nature/nurture debate, she uses mixed media to question modern standards and motivates her public to re-define systematic norms.

Hannah van den Elzen her works lure and confront, and it is up to the viewer to search for the hidden message.
