1. Skowronska, Elwira Monika. datascapes: Redefining the Sublime in Contemporary Art .

Degree: 2018, University of Sydney

Despite the recent resurgence of the sublime as a key theme in contemporary art and its profound art historical lineage, the concept largely remains defined in terms of its 18th century formulation by German philosopher Immanuel Kant. He conceived of the sublime as an aesthetic space where the human observer is overwhelmed by the massive scale of a pictorial object, triggering the perception of awe and dread. However, recent developments in art, philosophy and technology provide the foundation for reformulating the sublime: firstly, as emerging from minute rather than massive scale objects, and secondly, as the result of the material and virtual relationships between these objects. Through a creative body of work, the thesis experimentally tests the contemporary hypotheses of Claire Colebrook, that ‘sublimity allows all infinities to unfold from insignificant minutiae’, and Wojciech Kałaga, that the sublime is a relation between physical and virtual objects. It does so by exploring how a comprehensive analogue and digital approach can provide a portal into a new practice and understanding of the sublime by expanding Kant’s two notions of the sublime. Firstly, while Kant conceives the sublime as a function of vast scale, the research investigates the sublime as emerging from minute scale. Drawing on the work of Roman Opałka and Ryoji Ikeda as starting points, the creative works integrate the hand painting and digital notation of minutiae to trace a sublime that occupies a minute scale of infinity. Secondly, while Kant argues that the sublime is the property of human perception triggered by natural objects, the studio research explores how a reimagined sublime is the property of the infinite virtual and material relations between objects. Theoretically, the thesis explores this new, expanded concept of the sublime by evaluating its theoretical legacy alongside its artistic expression in the work of selected artists and the creative work undertaken as part of the doctoral project. In particular, it unpacks the tension in Kant's division of the sublime into the dynamical and the mathematical sublime. In the former, Kant offers the sublime as a formless infinity of massive objects that can be mastered through imagination, in which its unbounded nature is aesthetically sublimated to be rendered awe-inspiring. In the latter, he formulates the sublime as an absolute infinity that presents an un-representable limit to the imagination that can only be mastered conceptually through mathematical thinking. In response, the thesis conceptualises the sublime in terms of objects, rather than the imaginative limitations of human perception, arguing these objects occupy a spectrum from the actual to the virtual and at a scale from the minute to the cosmological. By focusing on the relations between objects at minute scale and using a methodology that integrates analogue and digital techniques, this thesis experimentally explores a new way of imagining and conceptualising the sublime beyond the limitations of Kantian imagination…

2. Li, Qi. A new approach to data visualisation through traditional Chinese aesthetics and gesture-based gaming technology.

Degree: 2015, Edith Cowan University

This practice-led research project investigates a possible new interactive aesthetic of data visualisation that emphasises how traditional Chinese aesthetics might be explored and examined in a contemporary digital technological context, specifically in combination with gesture-based gaming technology. Current research from the aesthetic perspective of data visualisation identifies the potential to enhance emotional engagement in the perception of visual images, but is primarily based in Western aesthetic concepts with little reference to non-Western aesthetics. The new aesthetic approach outlined in this research project draws from a non-Western aesthetic concept of the yijing and Taoist cosmological principles proposing the harmonious unification of the body, mind and technologies of visualisation. The application of traditional Taoist philosophy associated with the Chinese yijing aesthetic to the design of data visualisation emphasises the experience of harmony and unity between a user’s body and the data associated with digital technology. By considering yijing as a possible aesthetic approach to data visualisation, the concept focuses on enhancing the user’s perceptive experience in order to promote a fusion of the user’s feelings and the objective data in the digital technological context. This research project involved the process of creating two artefacts: Living Dream (2015) and Taiji (2015) using a sample of sleep electroencephalography (EEG) data. The artefacts were created using data-based digital practice and a theoretical framework. This framework articulates a data continuum, from information to aesthetics and then to Taoist principles. The two related artefacts were created in terms of the yijing aesthetic that emphasises the complementarity of xu and shi, and Taoist data visualisation that emphasises the unification of the subjective body and the objective data. This research project also presents a critique of the Western aesthetics underpinning data visualisation, in particular the Kantian sublime that emphasises the experience of power over nature from a distance. The Kantian sublime encompasses the mathematical sublime, emphasising a vastness that exceeds the comprehension of the viewers, and the dynamic sublime, emphasising the attempts of the viewers to control nature. In data visualisation, users perceive the magnitude of data from a distance, in which the users experience fear or awe over the power of the capabilities of technology. However, Taoist philosophy emphasises the unification of the exterior of the body and the exterior of nature as a Taoist body, rather than emphasising the opposition of mind and body. This research project aims to explore this Taoist body philosophy in the context of digital technology. I propose a new concept and practice of Taoist data visualisation involving notions of the digital yijing and the Taoist digital body. Gesture-based gaming technology, such as Kinect, facilitates embodied Taoist data visualisation through interactivity and immersion. Thus, my…

3. Urban, William John. Sexuated Topology and the Suspension of Meaning: A Non-Hermeneutical Phenomenological Approach to Textual Analysis.

Degree: PhD, Humanities, 2014, York University

This study assumes the subject's pursuit of meaning is generally incapacitating and should be suspended. It aims to demonstrate how such a suspension is theoretically accomplished by utilizing Lacan's formulae of sexuation integrated with his work in discourse theory and topology. Part I places this study into context by examining scholarship from the established fields of hermeneutics, phenomenology, (post)structuralism, aesthetic theory and psychoanalysis in order to extract out their respective theory of meaning. These theories reveal that an historical struggle with meaning has been underway since the Reformation and reaches near crisis proportions in the 20th century. On the one hand this crisis is mollified by the rise of Heideggerian-Gadamerian hermeneutical phenomenology which questions traditional epistemological approaches to the text using a new ontological conceptualization of meaning and a conscious rejection of methodology. On the other hand this crisis is exacerbated when the ubiquitous nature of meaning is itself challenged by (post)structuralism's discovery of the signifier which inscribes a limit to meaning, and by the domains of sense and nonsense newly opened up by aesthetic theory. These historical developments culminate in the field of psychoanalysis which most consequentially delimits a cause of meaning said to be closely linked to the core of subjectivity. Part II extends these findings by rigorously constructing out of the Lacanian sexuated formulae a decidedly non-hermeneutical phenomenological approach useful in demonstrating the sexual nature of meaning. Explicated in their static state by way of an account of their original derivation from the Aristotelian logical square, it is argued that these four formulae are relevant to basic concerns of textual theory inclusive of the hermeneutical circle of meaning. These formulae are then set into motion by integrating them with Lacan's four discourses to demonstrate the breakdown of meaning. Finally, the cuts and sutures of two-dimensional space that is topology as set down in L'étourdit are performed to confirm how the very field of meaning is ultimately suspended from a nonsensical singular point known in Lacanian psychoanalysis as objet a. The contention is that by occupying this point the subject frees himself from the debilitating grip of meaning. Advisors/Committee Members: Bailey, Steven (advisor).
