ranch style beans by the-Px-corporation ranch style beans by the-Px-corporation
...into art



8" x 10" collage on cardboard

duchamp thing taken in a fluxus archive book. i will check out for the artist that made the print.

edit: i finally found the reference for the duchamp print that i had photocopied in a book a couple of years ago. the artist is wolf vostell, the title is "duchamp", it is postcard sized and it was made in 1972. the only good image i found is located at this link:

[link]

note: because in the actual address of the page, = is besides ( , i can't put the exact link cause the little sad icon screws it all. so i took you the closer i could, then, you just have to click on "synthetic art" in the answers section at the bottom of the page.

thanks.

that is a nice comment. i appreciate it.

it's funny because i have kept this beans package since 1999 not knowing what to do with it...and it turned out unchanged with another unchanged image.

oh maybe all the stuff im keeping isnt useless!

its also interesting that theyre both found objects but one is very very visually designed and the other not (but this one is tres conceptually designed)

i also like the tautology

:iconthe-px-corporation:
according to what i've been keeping over the years, 10 or 15% of it might be useful someday...

tautology is courtesy of mr. wolf vostell who decided to qualify life into art on a certain day in 1972. life? beans? well i choose beans.
