"The Debriti Show,” created by JonMarc Edwards, is an interactive installation that comments on the power of language and communication. It is set in what at first appears to be an apothecary or medical marijuana dispensary, but rather than weed, it dispenses text, words and poetry. The Helvetica text is made from biodegradable materials and sold by the word, the phrase or by weight. In interaction with Debriti word tenders, attendees are encouraged to explore their relationship to language by forming a tangible relationship with text. In our current political climate and in a world where much of our communication takes place in 140 character tweets, the Debriti Show could not be more timely!
