I created a fantasy of the West before I arrived in Truth or Consequences, NM for an artist residency in June 2014. My connection to water and self reflection guided me as I decided how to spend my days in the hottest and driest environment I had ever experienced. It is said that if you soak for twenty-one consecutive days in T or C, the mineral rich waters will heal anything that ails you. I structured my time there by setting out to photograph and soak in every operational mineral bath that the town is known for. The work was produced while I was an Artist in Residence at Starry Night Retreat.
