Open Call for Submissions
Whether it’s the lure of reminiscence, the promise of the future, or scientific fascination, the fantasy of time travel holds universal appeal. The laws of physics suggest that time does not actually flow in any particular direction and therefore we might — someday — travel through time as freely as we travel through space.
The forthcoming issue of Conveyor Magazine will explore time travel by employing the camera as our time machine. The camera is a tool that alters our temporal experience and transforms our perception of time and space. A photograph eternally suspends a moment, leaving behind a document that we may then return to and investigate again and again. Photographs allow us to reassemble and manipulate the sequence of events. Timelines are thus reconstructed, the past is altered, new histories are created, and the distant future is just a shortcut away.

Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Untitled (Perfect Lovers)
“Gold is the most noble of the noble metals. Its properties are unaffected by air, water, or time. Thus, its alchemical associations with perfection and immortality persist today. its celestial associations are rooted in materiality as well, as virtually all gold on the planet arrived here by meteorite. Two billion years ago, an asteroid collision created the largest accessible gold deposit on earth, the Witwatersrand basin. The most gold ever mined has been extracted from the south ridge of this astronomical depression, now called Johannesburg, South Africa. Here, the noble metal is liquefied by heavy metals for ease of extraction, making mining a type of reverse transmutation, an anti-alchemy, turning land from gold to mercury.”
