The Elements of Nature are fourfold, Wind/Air, Water, Earth & Fire. Without these, the world could not function in the perfect and orderly fashion that it does. The wind raises the clouds to form the rain, that nurtures the earth to grow vegetation, fruits and flowers, and the wood that kindles the fire. Aisha is concerned of man creating divisions for himself wherever he places himself in this world. To represent this, she observed various architectural forms, and came to a realisation that architecture creates division of space and structure, thus, this being the source of her inspiration for the series of work titled Elements of Nature. Aisha also discovered that the Quran mentions in various verses the functions of the Four Elements.
