    the current active topics, sleeping, dreaming, freak waves and the catastrophe had me thinking of this painting. an imagination of the arctic sea as friedrich never actually visited the arctic or had been up so far north. the text is from esther leslie's "liquid crystals: the science and art of a fluid form"

    the-sea-of-ice-c-1823-1824-oil-on-canvas-967-x-1269-cm-caspar-david-friedrich-1774-1840.jpg

    "Caspar David Friedrich’s 'Sea of Ice’; the frosty sublime; imagined
    shipwrecks; Hamburg; the moon, the sea, the earth; Kant and the
    trade winds; diamonds; money, liquid and crystal, frozen wastes
    of abstraction; ice-up; money as a liquid crystal; 'as if'; liquidation
    of the self; everything is water; society is no solid crystal; crystals
    in crystal; melting polar caps; black ice; Urforms and liquid crystal
    screens; states, phases and metaphors; stabil; labil; matter and
    thought; water; displays; clouds; liquid crystals"

    "This is sublimity beyond the sublime drama of nature. It is a peculiar cold sublime, in which sublime experience is displaced. This is a scene depicting the after-effects of nature’s immense and indifferent powers. It pictures the afterwards of sublime tumult, when everything might continue as ongoing catastrophe, or when, possibly, there might be respite, a caesura."
