On The Rod

On The Rod was a collage book project that was completed in 2016, after four full years of collaging, over-painting, erasure poetry-ing, postcarding and illustration.

2500+ postcards (all reproductions of various pages from On The Rod) were lovingly placed in random library books throughout Melbourne (& in select other locations), for readers to find and keep.

I just wanted to have more poems in the State Library of Victoria than some wanker like Les Murray or Banjo Patterson. I also wanted to ‘fix’ Jack Kerouac’s misogynistic ‘masterpiece’ On The Road. Two birds. One stone.

I win.
