Description

"In a world where technology, spectacle and excess seem to eclipse former concepts of nature, the individual and society ... the notion that the sublime represents a taking to the limits, to the point at which fixities begin to fragment ... examines how the ideas of the sublime are explored in the work of contemporary artists and theorists, in relation to the unpresentable, transcendence, terror, nature, technology, the uncanny and altered states." --back cover.
