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. See more Likes / Dislikes posts here.
