(November 7, 2018) - First, Mud Head’s Cat Army (Disorder of the Bee) is essentially a mail art call, so everyone is invited to participate. In my opinion, Cat Army is also one of the most creative, exciting and innovative calls currently being hosted (no criticism of other calls intended).

Cat Army is part of the breed of contemporary calls that combines snail mail with digital, performance art with digital video and numerous other permutations of “intermedia.” Thus, perhaps some postal purists will object to this new breed of “Happenings,” but Cat Army is certainly in the spirit of Fluxus and other aspects of the Ray Johnson mode of mail art.

Mud Head is a gifted post-avant artist – already a legend in the Eternal Network – who works and lives in the spirit of Fluxus and the Post-Fluxus impulse. Mud Head’s work has an added dimension of the visionary and philosophical, which gives it a depth and humanity beyond sterile aesthetics rooted in materialism. In short, Mud Head is the ideal Shaman-artist to lead this new kultur kult which echoes network deconstructive spiritualisms found previously in Neoism, Church of the SubGenius and DKult. Participants are surely in for a great time in this new order of things.

I am going to share some Cat Army propaganda Mud Head mailed me. You can also follow (and even submit work directly) via the “Disorder of the Bee (Cat Army)” page on Facebook:
