Conveyor Magazine: Spectre // Spectrum

Our sense of wonder and fear is most palpable when our visions are fleeting…  

In the forthcoming issue of Conveyor, we will be searching for moments when the properties of a spectre, that which dissolves from our sight, and a spectrum, a continuum or perfection of vision, overlap and counterbalance each other. The trespassing of these apparitions between the material and immaterial worlds can be equally thrilling and terrifying, amorphous and yet revealing.

We’re looking for absorbing and unexpected sights—phantom or prismatic images, atmospheric phenomena, news from a secret admirer or an absent friend—things that remind us of sidelong glances, illusory dreams, primal discoveries, and ghosts in the machine. They can appear abruptly or be gently delivered; they can range from electrified vision to muted whisper, from stark revelations to those that bleed together.

Dark Matter is the theoretical composition believed to make up most of the universe; it is the unseen, mysterious structure speculated to hold all other matter together. While its foundations are cosmological, dark matter easily traverses the scientific into the ethereal. It points to macabre narratives, dark humor, mysticism, and ancient myth.    
For the fourth issue of Conveyor Magazine, we are seeking photographic and print-based projects, which engage the astronomical questions raised by the concept of dark matter. How do we elucidate the unknown? How do we illustrate an existence with properties that are inferred rather than directly observed? What metaphors stand in place for that which lies outside of our spectrum of perception? 
One must develop an innovative language in attempting to answer these questions in order to shed light on our shifting and uncertain understanding of the universe while also conveying the sheer beauty of the man’s exhaustive quest for discovery and answers, and ultimately a promise revealing a bigger story.
