Jaime Iglehart has been documenting the construction of the Flux embassy in Aarhus, Denmark for the project, The Infamous and Only Somewhat Ambassadorial Outpost of the Semi-Legitimate Nation of Flux. She's captured Fluxers in the wild, as they scavenge for materials to build a replica Flux inside the gallery of Spanien 19c and weave together an exaggerated Flux history. Watch this video to see Flux Artistic Director Jean Barberis explain the crest he designed to symbolize Fluxhood.
LIC / Long Island City Queens / March 5, 2010.
At long last I made a connection with the Flux Factory. They’d been on my radar for about two years, during which time I had made several feeble attempts to contact them via email and telephone. Over the course of those two years, I remotely watched them wrangle through ‘life threatening’ issues like finding a new space, as their former ‘factory’ had been committed to another purpose, and for a while they ran a ‘virtual factory’.
The Flux Factory is an amalgam of artists that seems to operate as a sort of socialistic whole. Yeah, I’m not sure exactly what that means either, but intuitively I think it’s an apt description.
