In 2008, Xavier Cortada created four digital tapestries for the Frost Art Museuem titled after the Greek classical elements: Aer, Ignis, Aqua, and Terra. In Greek philosophy, science, and medicine, these four elements represent “the realms of the cosmos where in all things exist and where of all things consist.”
