a Fluxus Manifesto

the actual passage was not as expected
flim flam
dj vibrations and flugelhorn
these analog conundrums stimulate the rounder digits
they are gleaming thoroughfares
sending us back to reverse
if not then,  and again
then a return movement
then a blasted interval
then a torque and release

To reconcile that which is prescribed to that which is chaotic, free to happen.  The joy of Artmaking.  Fresh and adventuresome.  Beauty of an idea turned into a verb with a license to do the opportunistic and the silly.  Use of materials common to our everyday experience.  Turned on its head, turned around, turned inside out, turned away.  Spun.  Curious with what can happen now, in singularity, in multiples, in responses.  Questions the expected art practices. An experience of ideas. Theatrical activity welcomed.  A possibility to engineer a degree of tension and surprise.

I spoke with Chris about the box and show for clarification and agreed to post this update on fluxlist. Ginny

All work displayed will go into the Flux box and will become part of the gallery’s perm collection. He says a list of artists will be sent out.
