"The definition of being a modern person is to examine yourself, to reflect on yourself and to be a self-knowledgeable person."
"We also like the idea of the monstrous. What’s interesting is that it’s a deviation that’s still part of nature, or part of culture or humanity, but it stands as a kind of distorted mirror against it. It becomes an active point from which to understand what a society or culture views as its norms and boundaries, and to show the limits of one’s own thinking or a set of cultural values."
