As I mentioned in “what is my final project”, interestingly, Ben is focused on the impossibility of my project.
Sublime is transcendental, intangible and abstract which is true. And my idea of final outcome is to build a perfect glass crystal ball (2.5 diameters) which will cost thousands pounds and lots of times. For this point, I could say this is a huge gap between ideal and reality with contradictions (this is also a part of the notion of sublime). “How can I approach that in a reachable way?” Um…That is a good question.
The Toaster Project by Thomas Thwaites is a good example on how to build a modern electrical equipment in a reachable way by himself, although the final outcome is ugly (personally, it is a beautiful project because of the unique).
To a certain extend, the process of how to make an impossible thing to a possible outcome is the key for one project. In other words, how to make the unapproachable ‘sublime’ in a approachable way is also a ‘sublime’, and no matter how is the final outcome, ugly or awful. Because the whole process is about how do I to approach that which is the most interesting part.
