Bob Watts | Light Flux Kit

Bob Watts
Light Flux Kit
New York City, USA: Fluxus, 1973
33 x 21.8 x 9 cm
Edition size unknown

A George Maciunas designed label on Canal Street compartmentalized box containing “peculiar light bulbs, chemical light, optics, etc.” As with most Fluxus editions, the contents varied.

Maciunas described this work in a letter to collector Hans Sohm in 1972 as “very nice item, but not cheap” and gave the price as $60.00. A year later it was listed in Fluxus newsletters as $100. The work is available from Hundertmark Gallery, here, for 4800 Euro.
