MinXus Mail Bag: Flux Score Kit from Sinclair Scripa (Ludlow, Vermont, USA)

Sinclair - 4.26.2014 - 1

Mail-art by Sinclair Scripa (Ludlow, Vermont, USA)

Tenderfoots will doubtless recall that Sinclair Scripa made her Mink Ranch debut during the Who Has The Best Hair Contest. Since then, she sent us this fantastic Flux Score Kit.

We admit to admiring this correspondence very much because, in the spirit of Fluxus, this mail-art is interactive. Sinclair Scripa invites us to enter into the process of creating art; and most of the content of the envelope is material the recipient can use, ultimately, in any way s/he chooses. In fact, the exchange can be viewed as a performance, blurring many accepted distinctions. Here is the material Sinclair Scripa sent placed randomly on the scannerbed:

Sinclair - 4.26.2014 - 2

Interestingly, we count only 12 scraps rather than the stated 13. When it comes to anything involving Ray Johnson and/or Fluxus, we are always careful to note the numerology. We also like Sinclair Scripa’s envelope:

Sinclair - 4.26.2014  - 3

And the reverse:

Sinclair - 4.26.2014 - 4

Deepest thanks to Sinclair Scripa for this FAB work. We needed some Fluxus ’round the ranch!
