High Desert Mink Hole is a multi-day performance/installation involving cooperation between present indigenous high desert plants and animals and future species of would-be-indigenous, would-be-high-desert plants and animals in order to solve desert plant infertility in a distant and post-human future, a future in which an imprudent alliance between the Bogus Yucca Moth (Prodoxus) and the Yucca Weevil (Scyphophorus yuccae) has impeded the reproduction of the entire genus yucca, especially that of the Joshua Tree.
