Cheryl penn's Blog – January 2012 Archive (6)

From Ruud Janssen and Thom Courcelle

I received mail from Thom Courcelle and Ruud  Janssen in the same week. They seem tied together in some way – so Thom – your work has informed the meaning I have ascribed to Ruud’s new FLUXUS word.

RCBz - In Memorium
