DIVING IN THE AESTHETICS OF THE TECHNOLOGICAL SUBLIME
The sublime is an aesthetic concept of the exalted, of beauty that is grand and dangerous. Through 17th and 18th century of the western cultural tradition, the sublime became associated with Nature.
In the 20th century, the technological sublime evolved from the natural sublime: our sense of awe and terror had transferred to factories, war machines and their unknownable evolutions driven by computers and humans sligthly merging into one being. In the 21st century we are totally technology driven, in a continuously accelerating evolution. New kind of visions, new points of perspective and new art forms arise from the ephemeral ecology of the technological sublime.
