How to find a Palm Tree

How To Find A Palm Tree began as a poem that emerged from free-talking sessions between Jasmine and Justine, and became the foundation for a world-building experiment. The world invoked affirms the fraught burdens of needs, weaknesses, desires and contradictions, especially for selves formed with and through diminishment, erasure, restriction and violence. It honours journeys of becoming full of wrong turns, rest stops, backtracking and hesitation, and is itself an oscillating project, created from years of dialogue and iterative transfers between artists. “How To Find A Palm Tree” summons and celebrates selves that are always moving toward, but never complete.
