A. Laurie Palmer is an artist, writer, and teacher. Her work is concerned, most immediately, with resistance to privatization, and more generally, with theoretical and material explorations of matter’s active nature as it asserts itself on different scales and in different speeds. Her work takes various forms as sculpture, installation, public projects, and writing. In 2014, Palmer published In the Aura of a Hole an extended exploration of mineral extraction sites in the U.S. (Black Dog Publishing, UK). Palmer collaborated with the four-person art collective Haha for twenty years. In 2008, WhiteWalls Press published With Love from Haha documenting Haha’s site-based work (distributed by University of Chicago Press). Palmer teaches in the Art Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
