Palming (series I)

These are visual interpretations of my virtual travels or palm tree hunting sessions on Google Earth. I visit and explore distant locations, “walking” around until I find a palm tree (commonly associated with exoticness, extravagance and escape) retaining and emphasizing the distortions or digital artefacts present in the computer stitched version of reality. I couple these “travel snapshots” with subtitles, appropriated from A Handbook of Travel-talk by J Murray, 1871.
