voltaire Posted March 17, 2004 Share Posted March 17, 2004 Hi Folks I'm planning a trip across the country this summer, eventually reaching Maine before I return to California. While this is somewhat a vacation, my real purpose is to explore our notions of the sublime, using GPS technology and your explorations to assist me. My course across the country will be determined by the GPS coordinates for sublime sites that fellow geocachers submit. If you have come across such sites yourselves and you have the coordinates for them, I would really appreciate your letting me see what you discovered. If you'll send me the coordinates, I'll attempt to incorporate the sites into my trip. The sublime has a long history with regards to landscape and images of landscape. I am interested in our collective notions of it and how we explore it through using GIS systems. This may present interesting ideas in relationship to 18th and 19th century exploration and ideas about sublime written about by such philosophers as Kant and Burke. I hope you'll find this somewhat interesting yourself and help me out by submitting coordnates of sublime sites you've visited in your area or in other parts of the country. It'll make my trip that much more fun. Thanks, voltaire Quote Link to comment
