A collaboration between Jonathan O'Brien & Isha Ram Das.
In a world after the internet, where small communities form around unpowered electricity poles, and where anxious adults and children alike seek distraction, two travellers on bicycles pursue a Great Truth in the north.
‘Post::Book’ is an interstate collaboration between two artists, combining narrative fiction with musical compositions and sound art. The artists invite the reader-listener to escape from our image-obsessed present, and to instead within their own imaginations conjure up visions of a world without screens. ‘Post::Book’ takes place in a renewed world: one where connection is no longer instantaneous, and where the Earth spins a little slower.
Jonathan O'Brien is a Brisbane-based writer, editor, and creative producer. He is the Founding Creative Director of House Conspiracy and winner of the 2017 State Library of Queensland Young Writers Award. @jonobri / jonobri.com
