The Fluxus artistic philosophy has been defined as a synthesis of four key factors that define the majority of Fluxus work:
-Fluxus is an attitude. It is not a movement or a style.
-Fluxus is intermedia. Fluxus creators like to see what happens when different media intersect. They use found and everyday objects, sounds, images, and texts to create new combinations of objects, sounds, images, and texts.
-Fluxus works are simple. The art is small, the texts are short, and the performances are brief.
-Fluxus is fun. Humor has always been an important element in Fluxus.
