Cardboard Sublime


6 minutes 07 seconds

Cardboard Sublime is a sonic response to Anne Carson’s The Glass Essay. It examines and uncovers the tension between the female form and the rural landscape.

Simone Weil imagines herself caught in a love triangle with god and the earth She wishes she could erase herself and reunite the two lovers.

If only I could see the landscape as it is when I am not there

Carson oscillates between emotion and analysis, anecdote and allusion, classical quotation and erotic shock. Cardboard Sublime draws upon Carson’s themes and method to present a soundtrack which moves from the natural landscape through the industrial revolution and classical music.
