Jean Baudrillard - Fatal Strategies - p. 79

"The scene is in the order of the visible. But there is no longer a scene of the obscene; there is nothing but the dilation of the visibility of all things to the point of ecstasy. The obscene is the end of any scene. Furthermore it is a bad omen, as its name indicates. For this hyper visibility of things is also the imminence of their end, the sign of the apocalypse."

love this quote. my fave is, "Reality is a bitch. And that is hardly surprising, since it is the product of stupidity’s fornication with the spirit of calculation—the dregs of the sacred illusion offered up to the jackals of science” (The Perfect Crime 3).
