“The Ghost Dance: An Interview with Jacques Derrida”:

“These technologies inhabit, as it were, a phantom structure. Cinema is the art of phantoms; it is neither image nor perception. It is unlike photography or perception. And a voice on the telephone also possesses a phantom aspect: something neither real nor unreal which recurs, is reproduced for you in the final analysis of reproduction.” (61)
