The Worst Poem In The Universe
The Worst Poem In The Universe is a journey through Australia and a response to the idea that it could be considered a lucky country. The word ‘luck’ is uniquely applicable to Australia because despite being a country with the highest median wealth per person in the world, it is also the most prolific gambling nation. These are just two of the many factors that give the country a distinct relationship with the word ‘luck’. The title of the project is a reference to a poem entitled ‘Our Future’, written by Gina Rinehart, the wealthiest person in Australia. Who, through her poem paints a fictitious picture of the state of the nation, which is drastically at odds with reality.
