When it comes to YouTube, I usually go for cat videos, dog videos, combination cat/dog videos, sleepy polar bear cubs, penguin dilemmas, or foxes jumping on trampolines. Once in a while, I stumble upon such an incredible combination of aesthetic elements that I am jarred by an experience of the sublime: as Kant might say, I am fearful without being afraid. The piece "For Chris" represents a sublime experience: from the contrast between music and image, the terrifying undulations of green, to the transition from the uncanny to the human when the subject takes off his mask. I cannot help but think that Kant himself would be pleased.
