Dark matter is a hypothesis for an imaginary form of matter, which does not emit or reflect radiation, and therefore can not be observed in any normal way. The concept of dark matter explains why galaxies rotate much faster than they should. 5% ordinary matter, 26% dark matter and 69% dark energy. That’s the recipe for the universe. Nobody knows what exactly dark matter and dark energy are.
We perceive a dark materiality – a texture of the world including everything and everyone who perceives it, an impossibility to finally tell apart where we end and they begin. The gray pea Timo approaches this dark materiality, something that withdraws from our gaze, is hard to verbalize, and contains only a small amount of visible matter. The dark materiality includes the unwanted, the hidden, the forgotten, and the ambivalent, that which is subject and object interchangeably.
