Along with the idea of ‘Fluxkit’ that George Maciunas conceived in 1964, Fluxus artists produced multiple editions of kits encompassing a selection of miscellaneous objects and sheets of paper as graphic scores for the user to read or manipulate as with interactive games. The kits were packed together in a small attaché case for sale, which was first advertised in the fourth Fluxus newspaper, fLuxus cc fiVeThReE that also contained Nam June Paik’s essay, Afterlude to the Exposition of Experimental Television. This Fluxkit is Ben Patterson’s Instruction No.2 with soap and paper towels that were rubber stamped with the instruction “Please wash your face.” Its actual performance was held in New York in 2011 where the audience came to the stage or to the bathroom to wash their faces, and afterwards there was a moderated discussion with the artist on the subject, ‘How is washing your face in public a work of art?’.
