First Editions is a live bespoke poetry experience in Pittsburgh, Pa.

This project requires only three simple things from you: an interest in yourself, 10-15 minutes of your time, and $20.

With this in mind, you will be asked to talk with the artist about whatever is important enough to you to be written about in verse.


Cast in Words

After completing a private one-on-one session with the artist, you are given the poem typed on cloth as a unique and lasting physical artifact of your interaction.

This work of art relies on the time honored technology of the written language. In a strict sense, this is an Epic Poem, broken up into small pieces and scattered across the city. It is a documentary record of a conversation between the artist and yourself, the commissioner of the work.
