Artist's Description

Oxygen is everywhere.. the air we breath, the water we drink… Oxygen is the third most abundant element in the universe by mass after hydrogen and helium1 and the most abundant element by mass in the Earth’s crust.2 Diatomic oxygen gas constitutes 20.8% of the volume of air.3

All major classes of structural molecules in living organisms, such as proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, contain oxygen, as do the major inorganic compounds that comprise animal shells, teeth, and bone. Oxygen in the form of O2 is produced from water by cyanobacteria, algae and plants during photosynthesis and is used in cellular respiration for all complex life. Oxygen is toxic to obligately anaerobic organisms, which were the dominant form of early life on Earth until O2 began to accumulate in the atmosphere 2.5 billion years ago…

Oxygen is produced industrially by fractional distillation of liquefied air, use of zeolites to remove carbon dioxide and nitrogen from air, electrolysis of water and other means. Uses of oxygen include the production of steel, plastics and textiles; rocket propellant; oxygen therapy; and life support in aircraft, submarines, spaceflight and diving.

So for my shot i thought to do something with water/bubbles since well the obvious… lol but what i wanted to do was make it look more fresh-water-ie since freshwater has more oxygen than salt water for obvious reasons… :-P

I have been uber busy with both deadlines from work and weddings/photography… I have a gig almost every other week on top of 40+ hours of the day job…. And surprise house guests!! Kill me! Lol so I just got the chance today/yesterday to finally get some work done on this… Lol Hope its still up to par… :-)
