Intermedia and Me

Intermedia and Me

As an artist, I like to play with, test, and explore the limits and boundaries around reason. Intermedia is concerned with the spaces in which media intersect, which is one of the reasons that I am so attracted to Fluxus. For example visual poetry is poetry for the eye; falling into the space where visual art and literature intersect. Sound art is art for the ear, falling into the space where audio (music/sound) and visual art intersect. Reason tells us…

On Intermedia

On Intermedia

Fluxus has always been notoriously difficult to pin down because it has never fit neatly into any category assigned by the art market or the art academy. I have summarized it as concisely as I think is possible into four parts: Fluxus is an attitude. It is not a movement or a style. Fluxus is intermedia. Fluxus creators like to see what happens when different media intersect. They use found and everyday objects, sounds, images, and texts to create new…

Fluxus is Nothing Special

Fluxus is Nothing Special

Ok… so Fluxus is special! But in some ways Fluxus should be nothing special, because the thing that makes Fluxus so special should not be so special. Confused yet? Let me elaborate… For the past century or so, and especially in the past few decades, there have been only two kinds of "official art". Institutional art, and Outsider art. Institutional art includes all of the art that dominates the art market and the dominant art history. To be part of…

Laurie Simmons Comment for Collab Fest 17 & 18

Collab Fest 17, organized and documented by Jim Leftwich, occurred on April 8, 2009. On the Flickr page for Collab Fest 17 there is a really good quote from Laurie Simmons taken from her project at ART : 21. I really like her comment because it explains so concisely the way that artists see the world around them, and are inspired by it. Laurie Simmons: “I think that artists are always doing research on their own behalf and for their…

The Fluxus Attitude

The Fluxus Attitude

The Fluxus artistic philosophy can be expressed as a synthesis of four key factors that define the majority of Fluxus work. The first of these points makes reference to the Fluxus Attitude.  Fluxus is an attitude. It is much more than an art history movement, or a style locked between a pair of dates. Fluxus is intermedia. Fluxus creators like to to see what happens when different media intersect. They use found & everyday objects, sounds, images, and texts to…
