Wind: a kinetic element that is elusive yet forceful and sweeps up anything in its way. This chapter focuses on the common life force and uses natural and cultural aspects as a backdrop on the path to discover this element while showcasing our purposeful gear. This series was captured by Nick Sethi to uncover the motion behind this robust element.
