Modelled after Gregory Ulmer's outstanding 'Applied Grammatology'(1985), the third and most extensive portion of my current work opens up a discourse on the invention of visual rather than textual poetics.
As a generalized extension of the results gleaned from the prior leg of my work (which takes connecting lines and connection language as its main example), Diagrammatology illustrates how the revision of any one model can take you well on your way to a grossly invented poetics of form for any particular practice.
In it I also review the massive amount of literature on the history of diagrams, charts and visualizations that I've collected over recent years. It eventually considers such esteemed luminaries as J. Bertin, E. Tufte et. al. , culminating in the criticism of a rather naïve minimalism that hands the reins over to the classical values of coercive argumentation over any kind of multi-perspectival pluralism.
