december 1st: GHOUL LOG

"My word for this piece was YULE LOG, for which I was both excited and perplexed. I struggled to choose between a Yule log cake and a background Yule log video loop until I finally decided to combine these themes. I loved the idea of constantly splicing soft violence with an offputtingly relaxing fire to add an additional layer of discomfort to my strange little dinner party."
