John Chick | Flux Food

John Chick
Flux Food
New York City, USA: Fluxus, 1969
10 x 12 x 1.3 cm.
Edition size unknown

A variation on the more common John Chick Fluxkit (see post here) which includes either "forest found objects or synthetic food-like objects" (as they were advertised in a March 1969 Fluxus newsletter). This version, in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, contains eleven commercial food labels.

Whereas the other Flux Food kits are typically (but not exclusively) made using clear plastic boxes, this version is white. Both contain the same George Maciunas designed label.
