Ray Johnson

Ray Johnson was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1927 and would have celebrated his 86th birthday today. Eighteen years ago he committed suicide, possibly as his last performance. On January 13th, 1995, he was seen diving off a bridge in Sag Harbor, Long Island, and backstroking out to sea. His body was found the next day. Hundreds of collaged artworks, many containing cryptic clues, were left carefully arranged in his home.
