Like / Dislike: su wu


Likes/Dislikes asks interesting individuals to create two lists: one of their likes, one of dislikes. The feature is based on two things: an excerpt from Susan Sontag’s As Consciousness Is Harnessed to Flesh: Journals and Notebooks, 1964-1980 and another from Roland Barthes’ autobiography (trans. Richard Howard, 1977). The exercise, while gratuitous, is rooted in ideas of pattern, construction, specificity, and memory.

Su Wu is an arts writer in Los Angeles. She runs the design and culture blog I’m Revolting, and is has curated a ceramics group show, the “I’m Revolting Ceramics Shop,” for Sight Unseen OFFSITE.
