Palmlines uses the webcam as a performance tool to capture and expose aspects of individual identity from the private setting of Parker’s studio to the public setting of the gallery. By tracing the palm-lines of her hand, Parker was able to evoke notions of palm-reading and technological modes of bodily surveillance as old and new ways of disclosing very personal, almost invisible information about identity into the very public arena of a gallery space.
