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 counterbalances 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. This issue of Conveyor is accompanied by Visible Spectrum, a set of nine commissioned artists' books in an edition of 300, with an introductory text by Mark Alice Durant. Each artist - Penelope Umbrico, Hannah Whitaker, Brea Souders, Andrey Bogush, Robert Canali, Inka & Niclas, Dillon DeWaters, and Nicholas Gottlund - is also featured in the pages of this publication. Together with the magazine, this set of zines is a collection of meditations on color and ghostly apparitions.
