James Riddle
E.S.P. Fluxkit
New York City, USA: Fluxus, 1966
3.5 x 4.75 x .75 cm.
Edition size unknown

A plastic box with a George Maciunas designed label containing a number of coloured cards. An instruction sheet reads: “DOP Instructions/Blindfold yourself securely and rub your fingers lightly over the colored papers. With practice you can learn to distinguish between the colors.”

Jon Hendricks' Fluxus Codex notes that E.S.P. Fluxkit was "issued as an individual edition, and is a component of some Fluxkits and most copies of Flux Year Box 2".

The work is held in numerous collections, including the Walker, MoMA, The University of Iowa Libraries, and Harvard Art Museum.
