              The Paul H. Cocker Gallery invites submissions that redirect the eye away from the iconic photographic image toward new forms and representational culture. The aim is to assemble and display alternative representations that lead away from homogeneity toward an architecture and culture that claims no specific center. The abolition of the center, and its replacement with the void is a position in architecture and culture that places no being in the center and redirects perception to the Periphery.
