Abstract

I approach the theme of the sublime experience in public urban space from the point of view of a visual artist and from the one of a person walking through the city. In the essay a concrete sublime experience in public urban space is analysed through an experimental artistic intervention. Thereby knowledge is gathered about the relationship between public urban space and its users. I engage in a dialogue with the ancient understanding of the sublime as an effect of elevated performed language. Features of this rhetoric are adapted onto the visual appearance of public urban space in order to reveal situations that evoke sublime experiences.
