Michaela Hansen earned her Bachelor of Fine Art in Apparel Design from Rhode Island School of Design in 2009. Her research-based practice examines the interrelationship of art, dress, and identity, incorporating paradigms of the archival and curatorial process.

A Continuing Reconstruction of Experience borrows its name from John Dewey’s famous definition of education. Jane Addams invoked these words in the founding of the Hull House Labor Museum in 1900, a significant inspiration for this installation, where flax, used for making linen, and indigo, used to dye fabric, are planted in the gallery space in recognition of the men, women, and children throughout the world working in the needle trades.
