Cyd's piece is a map collaged with the url's and descriptions of web sites that come up when one googles the word "Filipina." Over 90% of the sites are sexual and degrading to Filipino women or about mail order brides. The arrows all point away from the Philippines depicting the recent past and current Filipino diaspora of overseas workers finding jobs in other parts of the world due to the untenable condition of poverty and political oppression found back in the homeland.
