This is the ninth piece of a collection of 1 video and 25 stills, 26 pieces in all. High Desert Yucca came from a time when my partner and I had lost everything and were riding out the Great Recession in the high desert of Arizona. We did art every day to soothe our souls. The Yucca, as a flower essence, is used to hold onto your life purpose when all seems lost. The video was created from a single photograph that I manipulated in Photoshop multiple ways.
