Over 200 books folded and fabulous.

The TrAVeliNG FluX mUSEum Progress Notes

International Fluxhibition #4 is online and might I say, Cecil Touchon has done quite an amazing job. While a formal introduction (shaking of hands and how-are-you?s) does not yet exist between us, the use of “Mr. Touchon” seems a bit formal here so I shall assume we are now on a first name basis. There’s a new Flux Case project and we Fluxers have our ephemera all in a wad over it. I’m thinking some stereoptican slides, sliced precisely to […]

A poem as “liquid fluxus”

I recently discovered, via a Facebook friend, UbuWeb.com and Henri Chopin’s poetry.

The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh

On my recent visit to the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh: When events occur during one’s consciousness, said occurrences become commonplace, the every day background influence of the every day. I suspect 9/11 will become such a phenomenon. Take World War II, for example. To my parents, the greatest generation, the War defined the remaining decades of their lives. A lurid past experience that both tainted and enhanced every event. War never leaves. This current set of wars, the Iraq […]

Fluxus Lives and Never Dies

A question, posed by the Demonstrative Fluxus Administrator Cecil Touchon, answered thusly upon the Facebook Fluxus collective: Flux is distinct from Fluxus. Fluxus relates to an ongoing process. Flux relates and inflates, describes and contains a physical body of work. It encompasses mathematical possibilities as well as a state of mind. The eternal quantifier with a legitimate definition in the confines of the material and dimensional universe. Fluxus is emotion and art and without the sum of whole, there is […]

Phonographical Time Traveler

It is time.  The Flux Monitor reveals all. Yes, patrons of the assemblage rag, the most recent of days contains many puzzling conundrums. Can a conundrum not puzzle? Let me redact. I have assembled all the necessary proponents for my Correlation Phonographical Time Traveler. At the present moment, only the smallest of object can transport – specifically caterpillars of only the American butterflies, such as the Ozark Woodland Swallowtail. Soon, therefore, larger species will be enabled. Direct Student Loan Home […]
