Sometimes My Life is a Little Too Fluxus, Part Two

Last week I wrote about some of the works included in Sometimes My Life is a Little Too Fluxus, the Flux-kit conceived and assembled by Amy Spencer.

This week I will show the rest of the works from the little black case. Busy is by Pam Delucchi, and comes in an origami box with a stamped title.

The box contains eight small square cards. Each has a different collaged design on one side,

and a quotation about being busy on the other.

I am particularly fond of the Berenson quotation.

My contribution is The Decision Maker, a toolbox for simplifying decision making.

It contains a set of instructions for the use of the contents.

Here’s the text.

Chinese coin and one of four stickers.

Fridge magnet.

Set of six inspirational cards.

Fortune teller.

This is the layout for the inside of the fortune teller so you can read all its answers.

If you wish to make your own copy of the fortune teller, download the Fluxus fortune teller, and print it out. It is designed for 8.5 inch wide paper so you will need to scale to fit if printing on A4. Instructions for folding (and two other fortune tellers) can be found here.

The last object in the Flux-kit is a bell. It could signify more demands, but I am hoping that it means I have been rescued.

If you are on Instagram, you could check out other work by these contributors: @dogearedjournals, @byopiapress, @artbyuwi, @lpenner_allboundup, @pendantpaper, and @aestusbookarts.

Now, back to work!

    I like your project so much. But I think I mostly want the stickers that say “just say no.” That’s my preference when I mentally flip the coin. So I have my answer. (-:

    Very enjoyable blogs about “Fluxus.” I particularly enjoyed your decision maker or cootie catcher. I am 83 years old and remember making these in grammar school. I graduated from 8th grade in 1950, so I was surprised when I read the Wikipedia entry for which you provided a link. The article said it began after 1950, yet I was making them for several years before that in the 1940s. Yours is beautiful. Thanks for always providing sheets for printouts and cross references to so many of your projects!
