What is the sublime? Traditionally, it was understood via the concepts of grandeur, power, fear, transcendence, awe and stupefaction – but today, one might argue, it is best characterised by a feeling of disembodiment, displacement and chronic anxiety. As we enter ever more uncertain times – both existentially and technologically – the sublime casts a shadow on our future, making us both wonder in anticipation and worry in trepidation. As the two big powers of technology and nature merge, what scary frontiers lie ahead of us? What fascinations await?
