Following the idea of the ‘Fluxkit’ that George Maciunas conceived in 1964, Fluxus artists produced multiple editions of kits encompassing a selection of miscellaneous objects and 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 fiVe ThReE that also contained Nam June Paik’s essay, Afterlude to the Exposition of Experimental Television (1964).
This Fluxkit is one of George Brecht’s Games and Puzzles entitled Name Kit. Inside are five small dices in different forms, two rubber stamps, and a piece of paper with the instruction, “spell your name.”
