American Alien, a project developed by Flux Factory Artist-in-Residence Ye Taik, is designed to increase awareness of the Burmese diaspora and to serve as a platform for the Burmese American voice. Through interviews published as podcasts on the Flux Factory website, American Alien will address topics related to Burmese innovation and hybridity.
In My Imagination, I Was Already Here focuses on the city, its patterns, and grids. The exhibition title refers to a quote from Jean Baudrillard’s America: “I was here in my imagination long before I actually came here.” A phenomenon that is especially connected to New York City, we explore the scene precisely before setting it.

Flux Factory is packing its bags and temporarily moving to Denmark! In the spring of 2012, thirteen artists will create a site-specific installation and temporary consulate of Flux Factory titled The Infamous and Only Somewhat Ambassadorial Outpost of the Semi-Legitimate Nation of Flux at the Spanien 19C gallery. Constructing a miniature version of the Flux Factory space within the gallery, the artists will serve as Flux ambassadors on foreign soil, all the while inhabiting the space and performing “business as usual.”
