Developing almost simultaneously with my appreciation of mannequins, I fell in love with what I now know as cryptozoology. I remember watching various tv shows about figures like Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster and being fascinated by the immateriality of these characters. It was as if the more vague an idea, the more ownership our imaginations might exercise over it. When we are forced to fill in the multiple cracks of a particular narrative with our fears, expectations, or hopes, we become a part of that myth. And when we insert ourselves in a lie to settle it, it becomes that much harder to recognize the truth elsewhere.
