“This is pleasantly uncomfortable:” The experiment begins!

The Authorship Experiment participants and I had dinner in TPR last Thursday to discuss “authorship” and– as usual with TPR dinners– the conversation went in all kinds of interesting directions, at one point inspiring musician Paul Rucker to utter the quote in this title. Poet Kate Lebo brought an unbelievably delicious pie (pie fanatic and sculptor Leo Berk approved), and everyone shared some of their early ideas for the experiment.

It was thrilling to bring together this group of outstanding makers for a focused conversation; I’m honored to be working with all of them. Check the calendar for events as they continue to be scheduled, and read more about the idea behind this project here.
