This sculpture is a tribute to letter writing and its importance throughout the centuries. I wanted a lasting memorial to the hand written letter, postcard which is embellished with emotion, stamps, pictures and tells the history of everyday people at a particular time in their lives.
The world of technology is seeing the demise of letter writing. Last Post is a letter to fellow Australians that hopefully will truly last forever as a reminder of what once was and how important the letter was as a source of communication in our society.
With its demise go the colourful stamps, postcards, first day covers, postal services as we know them. Before they are gone people are asked to pause for a moment and read The Last Post.
