This essay connects the spectacle of the digitally animated workerless production line in contemporary blockbusters to David Nye's argument about the development of the sublime in American culture in the 19th and 20th centuries. It culminates in a discussion of Manufactured Landscapes, a documentary about Edward Burtynsky's photographs of post-industrial landscapes.
