PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Katie Paterson

A place that exists only in moonlight

Printed with cosmic dust

“Paterson’s (*1981) Book of Ideas is a repository of daydreams. This compendium contains Ideas that might be realised or never concretised. At its best perhaps the goal should be to forever remain a beta-copy, always to be added to, to stay a book never finished.” Mary Jane Jacob
A place that only exists in moonlight contains a series of artworks to exist in the imagination. Comprising over one hundred short texts, each concerns the landscape, the universe, or an expanded sense of earthly and geological time. These poetic phrases take shape in the mind of whoever reads the words, and so become an expression of the idea itself.
