diy valentine card + life philosophy from fluxus

We’ve been admiring this Valentine for years. It’s by Fluxus, a collaborative whose philosophy resonates with our own:

Erase the boundary between Art and Life…

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 combinations of objects, sounds, images, and texts.

Fluxus, whose founders included Yoko Ono and John Cage, created this mission statement in the 60’s, WAY ahead of the curve. Its philosphy resonates more than ever.

Apparently there’s also a male version of the Valentine, though we couldn’t see much difference. You’ll find them here. We haven’t been able to log-on to Fluxus’ e-shop and aren’t sure if it’s up-and-running. We might just print out this valentine to give to our love, with the blanks filled in…

Meanwhile, we definitely recommend checking out Fluxus’ site. You’ll find all sorts of cool things like the Surrealist Compliment Generator.
