Kernel Panic is a computer error from which the operating system cannot quickly or easily recover, so it forces itself to restart.

This goth's love of hot pink is a search for kernel panics in everyday life.

I feel that the visual shock this colour provides forces one's brain to re-evaluate their optical field and by extension their aesthetic experience of a certain image.

In a three tone colour system, with black representing the positive and white the negative space, hot pink as a third tone is formally significant as carrier of highlighted meaning.

Plus, it's hot.

By etymological definition and otherwise.
