Doll Valley by Beth Buxton and Jill Beth Hannes

In the vast desert of Joshua Tree, California we find a Woman in complete isolation, with no one for company but her doll Tabitha Su. We see a sense of faded glamour from a previous life, who or what is she escaping from, will her fantasy world free or entomb her?

The self imposed solitude leads to a growing detachment from reality as her obsession with Tabitha intensifies, obscuring omnitude with delusion. She physically imitates Tabitha Su, thus diminishing her own sense of self whilst projecting a consciousness onto an otherwise inanimate object. Is she losing her identity or is it being taken?
