Chloroplasts produce oxygen and our lives depend on them.

Chloroplasts are the building blocks of life. Why is that? Because they produce food inside cells. These organelles are not found in animal cells, but only in plant cells and some other organisms such as algae. Chloroplasts work by converting the light energy of the sun into sugars. This process is called photosynthesis and it all depends on the little green chlorophyll molecules that are present inside each chloroplast. Plants are the basis of all life on earth. They are classified as the producers of the world. In the process of photosynthesis, plants create sugars and release oxygen (O2). And the truth is that art produces oxygen too.

Artists are the chloroplasts of our community!

The oxygen released by the chloroplasts is the very oxygen you breathe every day. They are the opposite of mitochondria which use oxygen to release chemical energy from sugars.

Art and artists are the chloroplasts of our community. They give people air to breathe every day with the messages they create. In short, art produces oxygen.

Imagine a world without art! The human society wouldn’t survive. Art is the oldest form of human communication: it found a place in the world long before language came into existence. Artists’ work is the oxygen of human life around the world.

Consider what art does in the broadest sense. All artists, whether they are musicians, painters, poets, or actors, create chloroplasts for humanity. Some works of art are eternal, and continue to do this work long after the artist has left our planet.

What is art?

Nature means the natural world, and in the broadest sense it encompasses the physical universe, material world or material universe. The word nature does not only refer to phenomena in the physical world, but to life in general.

Art is generally understood to be an activity that people do, or a product that people create with a communicative or aesthetic purpose. Art expresses an idea, an emotion or, more generally, a world view. It is a component of culture, reflecting economic and social substrates in its design.

Keeping in mind that art produces oxygen… just consider a world without music, dance or art, books, movies and architecture. It would be like living in a dark cave with nothing around us to make us happy. Imagine that! We would die of sadness, just as life itself would without chloroplasts.
