Modern Sublime – Photographs from the Robinson Collection

Historical images from the Robinson collection exploring the idea of the industrial sublime

About

Traditionally, the ‘sublime’ has referred to feelings of awe inspired by nature. However, in the 20th century, the notion of the industrial sublime emerged – the feeling of awe induced by machines, technology and progress. Modern Sublime explores this idea, with focus on the Edgell factory. Devonport was once the largest processor of peas in Tasmania, this playing a vital role in the economy of North West Tasmania. This exhibition traces the journey of the humble pea from harvest, to factory and store, through images which celebrate technology, machinery and production.
