Fluxus participants included “artists, composers, designers, and architects, as well as economists, mathematicians, ballet dancers, chefs, and even a would-be theologian. I believe that it was a culturally rich movement as well as it represented nations on three continents – Asia, Europe and North America.
Fluxus movement was radicle and liberating in a way as it included professions and artists from different strata of society. It brought poets, crafts, culture into limelight and the collaboration between different visual arts, performance demonstrative art and electronics.
I read about the artist Nam June Paik then who participated in creating the Fluxus experience which was inspired by the Neo-Dada movement. He made his big debut in 1963 at an exhibition known as Exposition of Music-Electronic Television at the Galerie Parnass in Wuppertal in which he scattered televisions everywhere and used magnets to alter or distort their images.
There is a certain amount of fluidity and free flowing thoughts and expressions which is seen through the fluxus movements. This art form and expression has a structure and procedure but also a lot of chance imagery and experimental expression. I believe that Fluxus is known for experimental contributions to different artistic media and disciplines. This exposition is a great example of the blend of Music , Technology and its various interpretations.
I also read about Paik’s weird performance where he played Chopin, threw himself on the piano and rushed into the audience, attacking Cage and pianist David Tudor by cutting their clothes with scissors and dumping shampoo on their heads. I somehow found this form of expression ridiculous and could not really find any algorithms in the form of demonstration.
