Mailart Mania 4 - Canada

Spaceblog and NASA

FLUXMUSEUM spends est. $2.5 Billion in Taxpayer Money to Exhibit in Space.
To boldly go where no museum has gone before, the Fluxmuseum, on the whim of artist Gary Bibb, begins a global initiative to invite artists from around the world to participate in, what may well be, the most expensive exhibition ever mounted. The Exhibition: Fluxface in Space, using the last shuttles in the Nasa Space Shuttle Program will be launched into orbit this fall.

Using the Face In Space Program from NASA - we are organizing a "Fluxface in Space" exhibition to be launched into orbit on the last two Space Shuttles! Artists are to create one original postcard sized work of art in any media (preferably collage/ photo-montage) with the themes of Space Exploration & the Arts, the Shuttle Program, Outerspace, Rockets, Astronauts, Astronomy etc . This will be a commemorative project around the fact that the Space Shuttle program is coming to an end after these last two flights.

Of course the Fluxmuseum is not actually spending any taxpayer money. This money will be or has been spent by NASA without our help. We're just using a little digital space on the shuttle computers.

What to do:
Create a work of art 4x6 inches in size on paper about Space Exploration, Astronomy, the Universe etc. with the words - Fluxface in Space, for a Fluxmuseum exhibition. In addition, 1) jpg. photo of the art 2) one jpg. photo of you holding the art - same size as the art, 4x6. NOTE: see the helpful hints below for guidance.
Register and upload the photo of you holding (or with) the artwork to NASA: http://faceinspace.nasa.gov/
ONCE REGISTERED include the NASA conformation number on back of the artwork and photograph along with the Space Shuttle mission number, artist name, country, website and/or email address.
Email jpg. (4" x 6" 180 dpi - max) images of the artwork and the photo along with your name, country and Shuttle mission # for the online exhibition to: angellaferrara@gmail.com
You also have the opportuniity to submit a statement related to space exploration and the arts - not required but appreciated. (250 word maximum). Please email with the images for the web exhibition.

DEADLINE TO UPLOAD PHOTO (of you with the art) TO NASA: AUGUST 1, 2010 - http://faceinspace.nasa.gov/
NOTE: see the helpful hints below for guidance.



Deadlines will be enforced - so don't delay. The artwork must have embedded somewhere in the image, or on the front of the card, the words "Fluxface in Space". PLEASE NOTE - the Fluxmusem will only accept one entry per artist. Complinance to all the guidelines listed are required to be included in the Fluxface in Space exhibitions, publications and museum archive.

Helpful Hints:

The self portrait photo w/ art - try to position your artwork somewhat close to your face in the photo. That way your face and the art will be uploaded. NASA will have you crop the photo to about 3"x3" on the website using their program. It's easy.

Printing the conformation - once you have uploaded your photo, you will see a Shuttle lift-off, then a conformation page will pop-up. I suggest you write down the information from this page - the mission number and conformation number in case you have problems printing, that way you will have the info.

To print:
1) click on print this page
2) expand the new screen to see the print this page - click on prompt
3) the print window opens - the document is posted as Microsoft xps doc. writer in the printer type menu
4) sort thru the menu - select your printer type
5) click ok - it should print
6) NASA does have a helpful FAQ section on their site if you have problems.

Send the artwork and a 4x6 copy of the photo of you with the artwork to:

Fluxface in Space
6955 Pinon Street
Fort Worth, TX 76116

The online exhibition will be featured at: http://fluxfaceinspace.blogspot.com
We are pleased to announce that Angela Ferrara, Curator of the ABAD exhibition at MUBE - Sao Paulo, Brazil, will be the primary image archivist for the online exhibit.

An exhibition (or multiple exhibitions) will be arranged and a catalog published using the art, photos and statements. The catalog will be available for purchase once the Fluxface in Space collection has been compiled.

The Fluxmuseum may request a copy of the space flight certificate for the archive. All participants will aquire the certificate from NASA after the Space Shuttle has returned from the mission. (See the faceinspace.nasa.gov website for details).

Thank you to all participants!
Gary A. Bibb, Cecil Touchon, Angela Ferrara

John Cage - Mail Art project

John Cage mail art… supposing.

for the first hundredth anniversary of his birth … every process suffers partial or total interferences to work of case… C.G.

John Milton Cage (Los Angeles, 5th September 1912 - New York, 12th August 1992), is an American musician, among few of those that deeply succeeded to influence European music. His participations in Europe, among '54, '57 and ‘58, has aroused in fact the immediate interest of the musical vanguards that immediately perceive what is new, disturbing and stimulating in the music of the American composer.

He studies before with Adolph Weiss, disciple of Schönberg, and then with Schönberg himself. From the beginning his compositions have a clearly experimental character. In the thirties he begins a tie both sentimental that artistic with Merce Cunningham, choreographer precursor of the post-modern dance, that goes on for all the life. Not meaning here to circumscribe the complex artistic and musical vicissitude of Cage. This initiative wants instead to place the accent on the concept of chance - alea - that from the fifties onwards breaks into his artistic evolution.
Influenced from Zen Buddhism and from the philosopher Daisetz Teitaro, Cage supports the principle of the intentionality in the artistic composition and he tries to free the sounds from every expressiveness, introducing both in the composition that in the execution the concept of vagueness. He tries therefore to put together the sounds in a quite random way and, in order to make it, he uses different procedures.

As an example, in the 4 books of Music of Changes (1951), all that is written is fruit of the launch of the 3 I Ching coins, or book of changes. And we know that in the I Ching is worried exclusively of the accidental aspect of the events. The nexus cause-effect, so glad to the Occidentals, passes unnoticed. In the I Ching we have the synchronism that is the opposite of the causality.
That means, while for the western thought the importance is placed on the sequence of the events, here we find ourselves in front of a thought that first of all places the accent on the coincidence of the events in a given time and a determined space. The events happen just at that time, because they are interdependent among them as they are interdependent from who observes them. The vagueness of Cage is never absolute and his poetics becomes part in that cultural trend that crack the principles of the western thought and reveals its failure.
Then, it’s impossible do not think to Tristan Tzara and to the movement dada for the absolute preference conceded to the game and the accidental combination of words and objects, or - just to put a name - do not remember the dripping, the color left to drip on the picture, of Jackson Pollock.
