In her diary, Susan Sontag wrote lists of things she liked and disliked. Poliačiková’s has created a book that meditates on some of the lists which Sontag herself described as a means to “perceive value, confer value, create value, even create — or guarantee — existence…”. Poliačiková’s book is, in her own words, “an art project and personal adventure … mixed with personal histories and questions, seeking out the grain of experience.”
