The concept of the sublime refers to an aesthetic quality of greatness that evokes
simultaneous feelings of wonder and terror in the viewer. Historically, it is associated
with the beauty of raw nature and its power over the individual. In my work,
I translate this into a contemporary context, where nature does not exist separately
from the impact of humans and industry.
