'On The Rod' is a 322 page artist’s book project that used collaging, over-painting, erasure poetry-ing, postcarding and illustration techniques to satirize, critique, and obliterate a single copy of Jack Kerouac’s On The Road and turn it into a queer feminist interjection. It is not a homage. It is not a retelling. It is not a copy of the original found object/book, or an adaptation. It has been totally transformed, it is unrecognizable. There is no sensible narrative. While in production, the pages were done in random sequence. It can be read in any order, and makes (non)sense with pages in isolation, and as a totality.
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.
