Shit Thorn Liked presents a collection of memorabilia from an imagined shared past. A still life, stylistically reminiscent of early 19th century photography but rendered in projected animation, fabricates a biographical history. Wax candles cast from our faces exist in both the historical projected space and the physical space, creating layers of reality and fiction. As they burn, the effigies weep and melt into a mold of the other's likeness, regenerating and taking new form.
