Mail-art by Sinclair Scripa (Ludlow, Vermont, USA)
April 26, 2014 - Mail-artist Sinclair Scripa made her debut on the MinXus-Lynxus blog during the Who Has The Best Hair Contest. Since then, she sent me this fantastic Flux Score Kit.
I admire this correspondence very much because, in the spirit of Fluxus, this mail-art is interactive. Sinclair Scripa invites me to enter into the process of creating the art; and most of the content of the envelope is material the recipient can use, ultimately, in any way s/he chooses. In fact, the exchange can be viewed as a performance, blurring many accepted distinctions. Here is the material Sinclair Scripa sent placed randomly on the scannerbed:
Interestingly, I count only 12 scraps rather than the stated 13. When it comes to anything involving Ray Johnson and/or Fluxus, I am always careful to note the numerology. I also like Sinclair Scripa’s envelope:
And the reverse:
Deepest thanks to Sinclair Scripa for this FAB work. We needed some Fluxus ’round the ranch!
