“Disaster images become pornography almost by default, anyway there’s no “honest” way to approach the place of trauma without being implicated in it somehow. This feeling of being implicated in the disaster and its’ aftermath has to do with the appearance of the diagram. The strange thing is that the diagram rears its’ strange head in a field it’s not supposed to be in, the predictable graphic software space. In an awareness that is already assuming (consuming) everything as an apparition or phantom effect; the pictorial sensational catastrophe is overridden, overwritten by something else, or something less.” – Christina McPhee
