"If trashpo has taught me anything its that every windblown street corner and cyclone fence is a veritable Dick Blick of free art materials."

What the hell is DKult?

DKult was originated by DeVillo Sloan-- a Kult comprised of my 'fans' ---DKulters. He was the only one at the time and possibly even now.   But It has evolved into a friendly neighborhood Kult devoted to the worship of trash and  the creation of…Continue

Of course the expresion Trousers of Time, may be a make of trousers or may refer to the wearer, Time, the bloke with an oversized eggtimer in his hand. But I have never seen him wearing trousers.

Comment by Mail Art Martha on Wednesday

Tom, you are right the Fluxus Clock is our only hope to solve the mistery of the Sock Lost in the Post. Perhaps it got stuck in one of the legs of the Trousers of Time, when whoever wears them took them off in a  hurry? This posits many philosophical questions, even theological ones. By whom, when and most important why were the said trousers discarded?

Comment by DKULT on Wednesday

now these will be available to sell at Walmarth!!  are they cheap to order in bulk? Jack is buying for next Spring now

thank you Martha--it had a long and circuitous journey 

Comment by Mail Art Martha on Wednesday

Gosh! two years! It seemed yesterday that the sweat shops of Retailia produced the sock strainer.

Diane, that clock is amazing, such an addition to Cascadia!

Comment by DKULT on Tuesday

such odd and interesting happenings. The strainer is a great addition to any kitchen and would make a great gift for the tea lover in your life. The tea also makes the sock very soft on the feet after it dries.  Thanks for posting a picture of the fluxus clock, Jack, it was an absolute pleasure making it for you:)

Comment by Thom Courcelle on Tuesday

Jack!!!  Your Fluxus-time-clock-measuring-device-invention has come along at precisely the perfect moment!! It may help us solve where--or in what dimension--this one lost sock has been hidden for ALMOST TWO YEARS!!!

For more detailed information on this UNEARTHED DKult Trashpo ARTifact, you can read this blog post...

Comment by Cascadia Artpost on Tuesday

A new era has begun in Cascadia today with the arrival of the New Fluxus Clock, constructed by the DKult Industrial Complex of Elgin, Illinois under the artistic supervision of Diane Keys. Made of all recycled components except for the Fluxus symbols, the clock has a working movement and features the New Fluxus Symbol Set 1-B, with the twelve individual symbols held by magnets to a circle of keys in place of numerals. Telling time is simple under the new system. For example, instead of saying "a quarter past four" or "4:15", say "a quarter past melon. To our knowledge, this is the first New Fluxus Clock worldwide. Cascadia Artpost intends to issue a new artistamp this spring commemorating the New Fluxus Clock, another fine DK accomplishment.

Not sure if this came from DKultmistress DK herself, or from one of the Trashpo minions!! It appears to be a desperate ransom note. Is someone kidnapping DKult members in an attempt to extract top secret DKult information?

The document also appears to have been held up at the post office, then my interent went down for some time… Gee whiz!! I hope this DKult member is still alive… or hasn't been tortured in some shipping container in an old warehouse lot this whole time!!

Received cerealism from Diane Keys and Richard C. Many thanks!
