Alice, understood here as the chaos-cosmos defined in Alice in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There (1872), is still a great enigma. Paradox, nonsense, game, labyrinth. Wonderland and Looking-Glass Land are not geographic spaces, built within a linear and continuous topography, but puzzles, boards, mirrors, challenges and displacements. The universe expands, compresses and inverts as Alice loses and searches for her identity; she’s also about to lose her mind. (A fragment from my 1996 – 1998 research.)
