A performative retyping of the recently published original scroll edition of Jack Kerouac’s beat classic, On the Road. Morris first read and re-typed the journey on a WordPress blog one page per day. This codex version pours the content of that performative retyping back into the format of the paperback source book. It follows the default logic of a blog archive to put the last post at the start and stores the rest of the entries in reverse order. Whereas Kerouac traveled from the East coast to the West coast, Morris crosses America from West to East.
