Full Description

A collection of 54 digital photographs displayed in a Flash animation.
This artwork consists of an automatic animation (just sit back and watch) and an interactive scrolling animation that allows you to stop at any combination of images along the timeline.

During the time these photographs were taken, the artist was severely handicapped by an injury to both hands. It was difficult to accomplish anything but a driving desire to create led this artist toward digital photography. "I could work with this camera because it didn't have various knobs and buttons that needed adjustment. With the push of one button I could create something, where otherwise I was unable to do anything. If I had to stop for days or weeks it didn't matter. The images were on my computer, waiting for my hands to improve so I could continue to work on my art. I had the orchids, I couldn't go out, so I photographed them."
