Ultimately, Chapter 1 conducts a hauntology of the positivist definition of life that Dyens extrapolates from Dawkins. In Chapter 2, the invisible forces that this haunting suggests are further explored by considering the mixed media exhibition Eidola in relations to two related but distinct metaphors: ghosts and dark matter. From these tropes, the chapter argues that Eidola stages an encounter between disciplinary biases of sonic and visual art practices, accentuating how both are infused with a part of the other that they cannot avow.
