Other Perspectives: Landscape Beyond Human

7 March 2019, 17:00 - 19:00

Seminar Room SG2, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road

Abstract

This presentation focuses on the recent projects by artist duo IC-98 that combine installation and digital animation. In analyzing these works, I engage the aesthetic notion of Sublime, defined by Edmund Burke as a product of encounters with objects that are vast, obscure or otherwise excessive and thus capable of producing 'delightful horror'. My contention is that Sublime can provide a basis for developing environmental awareness.
