Elements is an interactive web-based installation that uses the classical Chinese idea of five elements (火 fire, 水 water, 木 wood, 金 metal, and 土 earth) to explore perspectives that contradict and coexist at the same time.

Create different combinations of elements by clicking on the characters, and press the "LAUNCH" buttom to see how they intereact with each other. Click anywhere to reset and try again.

At the end of each launch, there should be 15 characters in total on the screen. As a challenge see if you can get equal numbers of each element (3 each).
