The contested boundary between madness and love regularly reasserts itself throughout recorded history. We can trace the shifting relationship between these two phenomena across most (if not all) societies and epochs, particularly in literature and art. From lovesickness in the Middle Ages, to nymphomania and hysteria in the Enlightenment, to the stalker in American horror films, the boundary between love and madness is often blurred.

How did modernity end up in the Anthropocene? How did the twentieth century succumb to a Möbius strip of technics and nature wherein cause and effect, local and global, human and nonhuman, perpetually confuse and confound one another’s distinctions? One way to describe this planetary system and its ascendance is in terms of the technosphere, the socio-technical mobilization of energy, materials and information, which may be considered a geophysical phenomenon on par with other spheres such as the atmosphere or biosphere.
