Journal 580 Split

TRANSCENDENCE. Beyond. Beyond the physical. Beyond normal. Beyond what’s believed possible. Beyond even our conception of reality. This is the work of the Artist. Ever striving to see the world from outside the world to stretch the bounds of what one is capable of. And we are interested in this stretching… We seek the places, the spaces, the moments that exist at once everywhere, unknown and uncharted. Everything beyond and in between. Let the power of your imagination be your guide. We’re interested in stories, essays, and poems that speak to this idea of Transcendence.
