Artist Statement:


    Oxygen is a work reflecting the expanding hypoxic zones in the oceans. Hypoxic zones are areas where there is not enough dissolved oxygen to support life. The original is a video in which etchings, drawings, and photographs morph across the screens tracking the journey of the water and accumulating contaminates which contribute to dead zone formation. The work builds on the unexpected connections between our lifestyle and changing species distribution within the oceans.


Process Information:


    The work was created in in the ACES Visualization Lab of The Texas Advanced Computing Center at the University of Texas at Austin on their 75-monitor tiled-display.
