Branding, Design and Video work for Fluxfest
Fluxfest is an evening examining fluxus and its legacy, and unleashing a new tide of Irish Fluxus disciples. Fluxfest is in the anti-art spirit of the originals, continuing the Kirkos tradition of exploring territory others do not dare to tread, creating an evening that will provoke deep thought about modern art and turn your concert expectations on their head. Fluxfest is a Happening… and more.
Egg and Hammer graphics paired with format variations of the word fluxfest
Inspired by the iconic fluxus piece Magic Trick #2 by Mr. Ken Friedman:
Walk on stage with a sledge hammer, an egg and a small tape recorder. Place the egg on one side of the stage. Place the tape recorder on the opposite side of the stage. Turn the recorder on in the playback mode.Walk back to the egg. Pick up the hammer. Raise it high. Wait 30 seconds and smash the egg. Stand and wait. After 15 seconds, the tape recorder plays the noise of a chicken.
Everyone received a handmade box containing all things flux upon their entrance into the buildings. Most of the items inside were typed up by yours truly on the typewriter on a various assortment of paper.
As part of the kit I designed a unique name card for each person involved in the event. You can see them all below...
