In late 2011 I arrived in Sete Cidades, Azores. I
recalled Kant’s ideas on the sublime. We experience the
sublime when our imagination fails to comprehend the
greatness of natural events, in the process of determining
concepts of understanding, but supplants this failure
with a delight stemming from its ability to grasp these
aspects of nature by virtue of an idea of reason. That idea
appropriates the supersensible and human moral nature.
To experience the sublime sensibility, a body, being
human and being finite are preconditions. Was it a lack
of sensibility?
While filming I felt the urge to formalize landscape
through language games. It is the sight that makes things
valuable. Encounters with Landscape 3x happens to be this
exercise. Landscape becomes a dangerous playground.
When one is young one is daring and stupid, you grow
older and you tend to lose the daringness and get less
stupid. We change the rules as we go along.
