“The grotesque is a mode that is first and foremost about crossing into a different and transformative order of reality, and second about the unexpected recombinations of events, objects, species, we encounter once we are inside ... We crawl into our hole—in the grotto, the Symmes Hole, the black hole of the cosmos, the hole in our heads—in the unspoken and often unconscious hope of undergoing deep change.”
— Victoria Nelson, The Secret Life of Puppets
