An audience-led group poetry reading drawing from Shanzhai Lyric’s archive of poetry-garments. Audience members were invited to select and wear a t-shirt from clothing racks in the space, and read poems off of their neighbor's t-shirt. Poems were processed and projected using speech recognition software onto a screen, composing one long lyric called "Endless Garment." This work seeks to carve out a space for collective appreciation of the poetic absurdities and absurd poetries written through the collision of unexpected words and worlds.
