Just as Melancholy is evident in McQueen’s source material, it is wholly present throughout his final presentation. But what are the Keeper of the Blinking Lights shirt In addition,I will do this aesthetics of melancholia, and how do they intersect with the Performative Sublime? Originally, melancholia was one of the four humors: physical liquids present in the body that, out of balance, could lead to physical mental impairments. An excess of melancholia, described as a black bile, would result in bodily sickness, depression, and hallucinations. In the late middle ages, as scientific understanding of the body improved and the idea of the four humors fell out of favor, the meaning of melancholia shifted and became a romantic affliction of the artistic genius. Like the Sublime, Melancholia has both positive and negative elements. Whereas someone encountering the Sublime may feel on the precipice of immense power and energized by the experience, someone in a melancholia enters a state of self-reflection and takes bittersweet pleasure in sad beauty and fading memories. Just as the Sublime permits us to walk the fine line between awe and terror, Melancholy permits us to walk the fine line between sadness and reverie.

Michael Nyman’s score evokes the feeling of melancholia, where the viewer experiences the sweet sorrow of Ada’s longing. The aesthetic of melancholia is likewise in the fine calibration of the positive and negative. They further write of our encounters with ancient ruins that at once offer a pleasing spectacle but also trigger our recognition of a lost, decayed past. For the visual or the performative to evoke the mood of melancholia, it must stimulate positive and negative emotions. The tension between these two states is where the experience of melancholia resides.
