Aesthetic Palm Reading, 2012; collaborative performance Art in General, New York; and Give Me Your Hand, 2012; collaborative performance as part of Experimental Comedy Training Camp Residency, Banff Centre, Banff, Alberta, Canada.
Palm readings offer an opportunity to discuss history on an individual scale. In traditional palmistry, a practitioner looks at the lines in a palm to predict the future; my methodology uses the hand to talk about the present and past. Employing intuition and techniques from improvisational theater, I collaborate with the participant to develop an account of his or her past. According to Carl Jung, “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
