Long time no blog. Last week I met my friend Harrison for dinner to reconnect. He worked with me on the tail end of a web mag and attempted social media site for an artist collective I started and managed called Fluxcore in 2001. We were reminiscing about how fun those times were. We worked for nothing and put our blood sweat and tears into the creative projects we were so passionate about for Fluxcore. I was looking through some of the old photos I salvaged throughout the years and I got really teary eyed as I viewed them. The reason being is because I looked so happy in those photos, and it looked like I was having heaps of fun. Funny thing is back in those days I thought it was such a struggle to put together these events and it seemed like there was always so much drama. So in hindsight, I wouldn’t trade the experiences I had with the people and events involving Fluxcore. It was an amazing time in my life and it helped launched and shape a lot of people involved in who they are today. I believe we had a huge impact in the Chicago art scene in the early to mid 2000s.
