"what exactly is a diagram? The diagram is an invisible matrix, a set of instructions, that underlies -and most importantly, organizes- the expressions of features in any material construct. The diagram is the reservoir of potential that lies at once active and stored within an object or an environment (or in every aggregate or section of these). It determines which features (or affects) are expressed and which are saved. It is, in short, the motor of matter, the modulus that controls what it does." -Raiser+Umemoto-
