The Four Elements of Riyadh
In Babylonian mythology there are five personified cosmic elements: sea, earth, sky, fire and wind. These five elements still live on in western tradition through Greece and its five classical elements: earth, water, air, fire and ether.
This sculptural project represents the FOUR ELEMENTS, sea, earth, fire and wind;. fire on one side of the square, and sea, earth and wind on the other side.
The fifth element, sky, is the non- material element that binds the sculptures together. The dilemma created by the sculpture’s shapes arises from the confrontation between the material and the non- material world, the world of ideas and dreams.
Each of the artworks has its own particular features although they all have the same elements: two surfaces linked by a knot in a continuous shape supported by three points; each one different but interconnected by the same simple rules.
