Featuring newly commissioned essays and visual contributions, each publication is organized around a material reference – stone, wood, sky, water, and fire – symbolizing the elemental building blocks of our world. Each "element" examines urgent ecological concerns from a local and global perspective. The publications are edited by Ashkan Sepahvand, in collaboration with Nora Razian and Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez, and are published in Arabic and English.
