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.

Meghan Boody

We are Gods in the Chrysalis
The publication takes the reader on a fantastical journey through the strange and beautiful worlds of artist Meghan Boody. Her pictures, dioramas and photo-vitrines tell stories of young women entangled in difficult adventures. Female versions of the male heroic quest, these image-based novellas unfold in a unique brew of fairy tale, myth and personal memory. Considered a pioneer of digital imaging, Boody composites hundreds of Photoshop layers to make her heroic tableaux. Equal parts Dr Freud and Dr Frankenstein, the resulting magical environments transport the viewer into another time and place.
