Palmer lives in London, where she studied sculpture at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art. Through published stories, live readings and installed recordings, she proposes extended forms of writing as sculpture. The Dark Object, published by Book Works in 2010, narrates a series of power relations in a fictional art school. Palmer's work was included in 'Mirror City' at the Hayward Gallery, London in 2014. In 2015 her work was included in the group show The Weight of Data at Tate Britain and at the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds where she has a solo-show. Her short story Relief (A Remote Object of Thought) is in the catalogue for 'Modern British Sculpture', Royal Academy of Art, London (2011) and The Fabricator's Tale was published by Book Works in 2014.
