CHAOS // THE ELEMENTS

The untangling of Chaos is an act of creation. In ancient myths, Chaos was the void state preceding the creation of the universe, or the primordial state of matter. For Ovid, in his Metamorphoses, Chaos was ‘a raw confused mass, nothing but inert matter, badly combined discordant atoms of things, confused in the one place’. The four basic elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water) were the primary materials of the universe; they were separated from each other in the first place.
