Fluxus in Wikipedia

Fluxus was an international, interdisciplinary community of artists, composers, designers and poets during the 1960s and 1970s who engaged in experimental art performances which emphasized the artistic process over the finished product.[1][2] Fluxus is known for experimental contributions to different artistic media and disciplines and for generating new art forms. These art forms include intermedia, a term coined by Fluxus artist Dick Higgins;[3][4][5][6] concept art, first developed by Fluxus artist Henry Flynt;[7][8] and video art, first pioneered by Nam June Paik and Wolf Vostell.[9][10][11] Dutch gallerist and art critic Harry Ruhé describes Fluxus as "the most radical and experimental art movement of the sixties."[12][13]

I am not much of a Fluxus artist.

Back in the day I was a Beatle fan (as we all were it seemed) and when the rift came I continued to follow George, John and Ringo (but never Paul).  With John, of course, came Yoko and I always rather liked her stuff; the awful screaming and sitting in a bag etc..  I bought Grapefruit when it came out and still appreciate it.  That and the 'spell your name' boxes and the fluxkits, are my idea of fluxus.  The small things that had a lot of space to them.

I have been involved with mail art for may years but seldom archive; the flow is the important thing for me so everything, nearly every thing goes away again eventually.  Amongst the stuff that stays the longest are the fluxus pieces (whatever they are) and I have a small metal briefcase (the sort the villains use to deliver money for guns or drugs in all the old films) which I think of as my very own Fluxkit.  It has all sorts of things ranging from postcards from J F Chapelle (whose work I admire greatly) to little boxes of found objects.  I enjoy my 'Fluxkit' and add to it whenever I can, subtract too, sometimes.  It is a small ox-bow lake besides the river of life and will never be a museum piece.

Occasionally I come up with something of my own worthy of including but I find the simplicity needed, and the space evoked, very difficult to achieve but it's the journey, right?  Failure is the most essential part of success. Glad to have a home here for my occasional attempts . . .
