This is the only major work that came from my first residency in 2015. I spent two weeks at Brush Creek Residency in Wyoming. It was a great experience and although most of the pieces started there did not make it to completion, it was invaluable as an experience. The title refers to the depletion of oxygen in water. It frequently happens when contaminants affect a body of water. The end result of this process kills off fish and local plants. I thought it was appropriate given the qualities of the resin. It is by nature a toxic material, and the bright green forms reminded me of algae "blooms" that occur with eutrophication.
