Debtor's Prison is the first collaboration between poet/novelist Lewis Warsh and video/visual artist Julie Harrison, in which skewed and closely-cropped black & white video stills from Harrison's primitive-style documentary and performance tapes of the 1970s are paired with stark lines of text written in response by Warsh.

"Debtor's Prison combines the intelligences and sensibilities of two compelling artists, Lewis Warsh and Julie Harrison, and through their ways of seeing and observing, investigates the strange call and response between forms. The ambiguities of meaning, life's pleasures and anguish, find a beautiful and disturbing home here." —Lynne Tillman
