Palm of the hand stories
Throughout his writing life, the Japanese writer Yasunari Kawabata wrote “palm of the hand stories,” narratives that were only a page or two long. These miniatures exist at the crossroads of the poem, the short story, a thought and a painting. How abbreviated can the telling of a story be? How is it possible for an image to become a narrative? Inspired by Kawabata, this generative workshop will explore the possibilities of the miniature.
