Found an interesting bunch of papers in Tate papers No18 about the relationship between trace, diagrams and the index. Will use this material in the revised project proposal, which I think is going to be part text – part diagram.

“In the course of Time, these Extensive maps were found somehow wanting, and so the College of Cartographers evolved a Map of the Empire that was of the same Scale as the Empire and that coincided with it point for point.”
-Jorge Luis Borges, “Del Rigor en la Ciencia”, 1946.
Could be best thing about this paper is this quote but I like the link between situationist cartography, and Deleuzian diagrams.
going to look into the architectural aspects of diagrams and this is a good place to start.
This could be a detourned project plan. Going to use a diagram to illustrate project relationships and flow between different aspects.
Diagrams of utopia is the most relevant. Chapter from a book on New Babylon which I read earlier but didn’t appreciate the use of diagrams at the time.
This is a pointer to the relationship between models and diagrams that I want to bring out now in the project proposal – broadening the scope from models to an ecology of media around them.
